The Hostas Mug

      Spring is in full swing and while flowers come and go, there is one color that continues to grow silently and bring peace and harmony to the landscape, namely green. Seeing the brown landscape magically transform into green is like therapy for the winter weary eyes of us humans, here in the Northeast of America.

      So as to commemorate and celebrate this greening party, here is the design for my second prototype mug, that bears a painting of one of my favorite perennials, namely Hostas.

      To those among you who are new to this blog and wish to know more about how this design was created, here is the post that tells the story from its conception to gestation and creation. Also here is an old post with images that inspire the mind with the aesthetic and chemistry between white and green.

      All this bubbling creativity has finally manifested itself into the form of a mug. This design will also take many other forms such as a tea pot, soup bowl, chili bowl etc.  Ah! green, the color that helps you relax and unwind. Spread the word, spread the joy….coming soon to a store near you!
