"Live in the sunshine. Swim in the sea. Drink the wild air." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson's instructions are short and to the point, but they seem to me to be good instructions for a happy life. For anyone who thinks simple is best--or merely that sunshine, the sea, and the wild air are best--this is the perfect mug to inspire you while you drink your morning coffee or tea.

I painted the quote on a smallish, narrow white mug with an angular handle. On one side I have painted a sprawl of wild flowers; on the other, a wee perching bird, ready to take flight into the "wild air."

A perfect reminder to live your life with all your senses.

All of my work is done with heat-set ceramic paint, and will do very well with dishwashers and the ordinary passage of time. I would, however, recommend against the use of strong abrasives.
