When my hairdresser took a sip of her caramel coffee and placed it on the counter, I had an Ah-Ha moment. Her bright red lipstick on the rim of the cup pulled me in and stirred up creative juices. As she deftly swiped scissors across my bangs, I mentally created a scene for two coffee cups on a date. Coffee shops inspire romance. Love and coffee in exotic Italian, Paris, or even small hometown coffee shops like here in Bend, Oregon.

So in keeping with the theme of romance for the next three weeks until Valentine’s Day, here is a bright little painting to remind us to add a little romance into your day…maybe at a coffee shop? Red lipstick on one cup, the other cup snuggling close by, clearly on a date. Coffee colors and red splatters add to the ambiance and create subtle chaos. Texture in the background adds to the tension and fun in the painting.
