i love this cup! i really like the light and shadows inside of it! it's an all-one-colour cup, but you can see its shape in subtle differences.

Lovely! There used to be a painting of a cup on the wall of a meeting room at my work. Whenever I was stuck in a meeting, I'd stare at that painting and blank myself out from whatever boring thing everyone was talking about.

Ummm, a cup not filled but quiet and waiting maybe for use, or placed just for the beauty of it. Lovely and serene piece of work, love the pastel.

Really like the colors and the composition. Cups, commonplace as they are, can really evoke a lot of different emotions and feelings. Beautiful.
