No, I did not SNOG my painting!




'EVIDENCE'...


8" x 10" Oil on Museum Quality Cradled Gessoboard

SOLD




...As much as it was tempting to simply pucker up and give my painting a big old smackerooni, the idea of spreading toxic oil paint on to my lips did not seem to me, the most sensible one!

However pleased I have been with a painting, I have never yet felt the urge to actually SNOG one! I mean, that would just be plain weird, right?

So, instead I mixed the exact shade of my lipstick with my paints, like a well behaved Artist (who does not have a death wish) should :0)

...Here in the UK, there is no phrase more used than, 'I'll put the kettle on'...
How is it that no matter what the crisis, we always reach for a teabag? What is it about a cup of tea that makes a disaster seem just a little more tolerable? 
...It's one of life's great mysteries!
I find a nice cold beer to be more effective, but each to their own!

  1. I confess to a mug of steaming tea per hour - addicted! I also confess to not using 'lippy'.

    This painting is fabulous - painting glass is difficult (to others) but painting a white cup and saucer is brilliant (speaking as an oil-painter who has completed two now!)... the lipstick is a masterstroke ... you're a bloody genius.

    1. Wow, that's a lot of tea! Although I used to drink around eight cups a day too! But now I've switched to mainly decaf because I was over doing the caffiene. Now I have a couple of caffienated cups in the morning but the rest are unleaded! :0) I'm glad you like the painting... Thank you John! :0)

  3. Bonjour ma chère Sandra,

    Je suis très heureuse de te lire et aussi d'admirer cette belle tasse de thé... qui me parle. La mienne près de ma palette ressemble beaucoup à la tienne... avec la marque féminine de mon rouge à lèvre !...
    Tu as eu une riche idée que de la peindre ainsi. Celle-ci a une âme et j'aime beaucoup la douceur des nuances claires que tu as utilisées.
    Je viendrais bien prendre une tasse de thé avec toi ! J'espère bien qu'un jour cela puisse arriver !
    Un grand merci pour ton gentil petit mot, il me touche beaucoup.

    Je t'embrasse affectueusement,
    Gros bisous et des "bizouilles" de Sir Icarus !

    1. Merci Martine! Je suis heureux que vous aimez ma tasse de thé! J'aimerais aussi profiter d'une tasse de thé avec vous ... ou peut-être un verre de vin dans le soleil de Saint-Tropez! Il sera peut-être possible un jour .... Gros bisous! : 0)

  5. So very original, Sandra - great idea and brilliantly painted! I do admit that I never heard the term "snogging" before but surmise what it means from your painting and your post!

    1. Lol, really? How funny! It means a big hollywood style kiss!
      I get a lot of emails from other Americans too asking about the word 'Chuffed' (meaning thrilled), which I use frequently! It's funny how we all have our own words for things isn't it? I'm glad you like the painting... Thanks so much! :0)
