Impatience by DestinyBlue Impatience by DestinyBlue
Hot coffee. Cold day. Mittens on. Can't feel the cold. Can't feel the heat. Sip a little too early. Burnt tongue. Dammit.

I watched a girl do exactly this at a train station, it was so cute, she was geared up against the cold, but because of her mittens she couldn't feel how hot her coffee was, took a sip, made this adorable little 'ouch' face, then just stared at the coffee cup as it if was a lover who just told her it needed a 'break', and chewed her scarf. It was adorable, I'm sorry I stared at you XD 
I doodled her then and there (always travel with a sketchbook guys) I didn't expect it to turn into a proper painting, but when I added colour I liked where it was going. It's still a bit rough round the edges, but then maybe it takes after it's creator like that ;) heh

Well she had to be patient in the end, because the train was late XD

The real take home is not about letting you coffee cool before you drink it; but that if you do anything cute in front of me I will draw you! :heart: :heart:

Peace, love and letting your hot drinks cool down a bit,
~Blue

Love this so much! I bought this painting from you at Supanova and then it completely dissapeared! I was so sad. :(

I've only recently realized I wanted to pursue art more seriously (after getting a degree in something else, go figure). Your art is so beautiful and inspiring, and it's kick ass that you are self taught, it gives me hope that I can improve. Team Blue. :-D

P.S. This piece is my favorite, and the story behind it is adorable. :-)

AMAZING!! As a fellow artist, I just can't help but appreciate how beautifully you captured this moment! How on earth did you use all those tints and hues to shade it?? And her expression is just perfect! Awesome job!! :D

great work, I luv the array of colours used and the powerful contrast,
and the warm glow created by the yellow outline on the right side of her body,
also a very beautiful subject, she has lovely celtic eyes :)
