Coffee Mug As Artist Tool

One necessary tool when painting or creating assemblages is my Montreal coffee mug. I have other mugs, but this one is my favorite.
Favorite scenic painting spot?
Although Montreal is just a magical train ride away, (aren't they all?), I haven't been back since childhood. So I pour my first cup of espresso, grab my bags and board the mysterious 'Montrealer' for a joy ride. I travel to unseen places - with great scenic vistas - while I paint. 'Express' time travel is a wonderful thing. Bet we hold the same boarding pass whatever grounds we choose.

Ah, mixing the backstage with the back story, very nice. Btw I bet you are not always on the express joyride sometimes I think you take the local

A favourite mug and a good brew can take the creative mind on such fascinating travels. Isn't it wonderful!
I can't put my mug on the table near my paints or I accidentally use it as the water jar!

Ooooo...I know what that feels like, Carole! I've also done the opposite which gives another tactile surprise: dunked my brush deep into what I thought was my rinse jar and sunk it up to my fingers into a jar of thick paint.
