Friday Favs..."My Favorite Cup" watercolor

I have a whole cupboard shelf dedicated to my many favorite cups.  I love having my morning coffee or my afternoon tea in one of my cute cups.  The other day I had an idea to do some little watercolor drawings of some of my favorite cups paired with a cute saying.

These are my watercolor interpretations of three of my favorite cups.  They are not photographs, so I didn't try to make exact detailed replications, but I simply relaxed and drew "close enough" representations of the cups, then painted them with watercolors.

I thought it would be fun to have a little giveaway of one 8x10 unframed "my favorite cup" watercolor painting on high quality watercoloring paper.  The winner can choose to send me a close up photo of their favorite cup and I will attempt to paint it, or they can choose to have me paint a copy of one of my cups.  To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment telling me whether you are a tea or coffee lover.  I will pick a winner from the comments and let you know who wins in next week's Friday Favs post.

It's almost Friday, friends!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a safe and BLESSED weekend!
