coffee, or chocolate? WIP

oil on canvas board 5"x7"
I think the background needs improvement!
When I took a picture of those 2 cups at home, yesterday, I thought it would fit with this soft cream  woollen blanket ;in fact it looks weird,I am going to change the background, maybe in pale green. And the hardest thing will be to properly correct the ellipse of the saucer...

The head in the boxes


Here we are, approximately  50 boxes block the garage for several months, even more some years before being opened!
And I am going to be available for painting, that it was not the case for several weeks!

This was  my recent entry for Rookie Painter;
It had been a long time since it was begun, but I had never finished;
December was very hectic with the move of my apartment in Paris, and now I am up to the neck in boxes and to finish, troubles with my computer, which is not nevertheless old (1year): unpleasant sites came every night, uninvited; I was obliged to restore the system, to reinstall it, thus I lost many data. 
But I now think of being on form to begin the year.Tomorrow,I am starting a painting course on line with Nel Jansen , and I am very eager to improve my skills!
All my wishes to everybody, you who make me a favour by  visiting my blog and leaving comments, which are  always welcome...
