A Spring Tea

10 x 10 , oil on canvas
My calendar has spring written all over it, 
and yet outside my window is a swirling snow globe! 
Fabulously fickle March.
Perfect for pale, soft colors
and a cup of tea.

"Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis 
on which the world earth revolves-
without rushing toward the future."
Thich Nat Hahn

Faye - this is just an outstanding piece, in my amateur opinion! Such a romantic, timeless presentation. I am obsessed with how you handled the roses - soft, varied, subdued, loose, disappearing edges in all the right places. I think I can smell them!

I concur w/ Debi. Love the limited value range, too. Adds to the feel of the piece.
