Coffee at the Ritz

20x16" Oil on linen panel
Purchase Info

Subject: This still life oil painting depicts a bit of nostalgia. Though most of us didn't grow up having coffee served in silver pitchers, many of us owned one and saved it for special occasions. Today's young couples would rather have a Keurig so there's no need for a coffee server. I personally prefer my trusty drip coffee pot--though I don't pour it into a silver pot. I still like small tea cups, though I stay away from the beautiful gilt-edged ones that go "crackle, crackle" when I warm up a cup in my microwave. Dishwashers and microwaves were the death of fine silver and china, but who wants to live without these?

Note: This is an unframed painting on a 1/8 inch Senso linen panel.
