Roadtrip #806

This week's DPW Challenge is to paint one's favorite mug. My favorite is the kind one gets at the beginning of a road trip (and then the one gotten at the middle, and the other 2/3's of the way through and. . . ).

Other News: I saw a very mean, large snake today (he was THIS big, read about 4inches) and screamed. I did not scare the snake, but rather I managed to frighten my dog, Brie, the coward. She scrambled up my side and I had to console her. She, didn't even see the python (read worm). I also do not like frogs. Okay, cute, happy little frogs, oh, sure, molded into ceramic giftware, holding sponges or soap or on kid's pajamas are just fine, but out in the middle of the wilderness, no thank you.


  1. OK, now this made me laugh out loud really. How funny!

  2. Totally hilarious and the cup looks like I could reach out and take it :) Great work, Lisa!

  3. I love the painting. That Poor puppy.

  4. I like how the rear of the cup blends into the background giving it a sense of motion.

  5. I've realized in my writing of my snake incident it reads as if the snake screamed. Which is so funny to me, a screaming snake (probably not so funny to my writing teachers).

  6. :D Funny!
    I actually did see a large snake in Florida and it was 4 FEET long and black. I went into the house and did not come back out until I was SURE it had gone away.
    Like your mug.
