EDM #142 Draw Something Hot

The EDM Challenge #142 is to draw something hot. So, I decided to combine two of my favorite hot things: coffee and Hawaii.

It's been gray, foggy, and cold here in Portland, Oregon. It's no accident that folks in the Northwest are coffee addicts....we use it to self-medicate when the sun disappears for months at a time and the rain soaks through everything. And now that we had to change our clocks back, it gets dark sooooo early.

So, I turn to coffee and memories of Hawaii! This is one of my favorite mugs from Maui. It's tall and narrow.



When I use it, I think about having breakfast out on the lanai,


looking at the ocean.....

and the palm trees

and the clear blue sky

and the flowers

You must think of Hawaii the way I think of Bali. It's been raining here for days & supposed to rain till Sunday. I don't have a coffee mug from Bali but I have the scents & sounds. Time for them I think. Love your drawing style. Looked at all of them. Particularly liked the plastic bottle with the pink & green.

That is a beautiful coffee cup! I must say I don't know how you guys do it in the NW. I go crazy when it rains for days here. I need the sunshine to keep sane.
