Time for tea

How many cups of tea do you drink a day?  There is a very big difference drinking tea from a large mug compared to drinking tea from a beautiful, delicate, china cup. Properly brewed tea tastes better when you drink it from a small china cup. The flavor is much more intense.

My love of tea and flowers inspired the painting I created on this cold, rainy Sunday.

The painting celebrates all things tea related. The cup, the tea bag, the spoon to stir. The pansy is there because I love pansies.

I started off with much darker cup in the left top corner which did not look right so I painted over it with white paint. I am not entirely happy with the tea cup and will need to practice painting cups from this angle.
