That quiet moment in the mornings, before the full world awakens, if only we could bottle it up. This painting was created primarily between the hours of 3am-9am. The woman is holding a red and white mug, inspired by the dishware of USSR in the 80's, and the embroidery on her blouse, as a subtle ode to Ukrainian vyshyvanki.
