And pleasant scents the noses"...Nathaniel Parker Willis

Faye- this is so delicately beautiful. You can hear the " ping " of that fine porcelain cup.
Love the way you got all those pearlescent whites to do what reflected lights do on white.

Love everything about this one.

What a beautiful painting! I love those ornate tea cups and your rose is the perfect accompaniment. The delicate gold rim is perfect. You did a great job on highlights and reflections. That touch of rose color in the cup and rim really makes this special!

Congrats on being featured on Tony Moffitt's blog today!

I think the first image I ever saw of yours was a tea cup... My memory may be failing but I remember something lovely .... just like this... The cup is absolutely superb!! Great reflections and shine... And set against that rose... just wonderful.
