NEW CUP 6"X6"



This red cup is from a recent trip to a Goodwill store. A still life artist treasure trove. Only 49cents and a gorgeous blue interior that I will paint at another time. It's kind of funny when I think about all the stuff I have given Goodwill over the years(coffee mugs, plates etc.) and then I go buy back more coffee mugs and plates.

I have one bid on the cigarette lighter painting I posted on ebay. That means the Lung Assoc. will get at least
$25.

I LOVE this red cup, Anita! I can't believe you bought it at Goodwill -- and so cheap. Your story about donating so much, only to go back and buy other things is funny. Many of us probably do the same thing. I look forward to seeing more paintings starring this little gem!

Oh, I forgot to say it's great that you received a bid on the lighter . . . and very kind of you to donate proceeds to the Lung Association!

Love this one and the colors are wonderful. So glad to here that the little lighter that could...is going to sell and be a good thing for you:) I know that will mean a lot to you.

This sounds like my mother and garage sales! She would laugh about having a garage sale to get rid of the stuff she bought at garage sales. Lovely reds in your cup. Well done!
