Tea, Anyone?

Tea, Anyone?
16" x 20" Oil on stretched canvas
$495.00 + $20. s/h

I had so much fun painting the last two pieces, that I've put them together in a larger painting.  White china on wood creates such strong reflections.  I'm going to have to paint these again.

Je m'invite pour une pause thé et pour remplir cette charmante soucoupe je vous propose d'apporter des friandises... Belle et généreuse peinture.
Bisous

Fabulous! Beautiful china, great reflections, lovely painting.

Christiane Kingsley said...

What beautiful reflections. This is such a nice painting. It was a great idea to do all three pieces together.

I love this setting! Fabulous! :-)

Dana Cooper said...

Nice job Pam, I love the subtle little temperature shifts in the china...great reflections too!

Nancy Van Blaricom said...

Oh what beautiful china paintings. Your reflections are so nice. I see a series in the works. (?)

Pam Holnback said...

Thank you Becky, I like this china, too. I think I'll do some more w/ it!

Sherry, Thanks. I created this "table" by taking some kitchen table leaves out of the closet and setting this up on a stool in my studio. But, it works!

Merci Martine, I look forward to you coming for tea!

Debbi, Thank you!! Your constant support always helps me.

Thank you Christiane, It was fun setting this piece up.

Crystal, Thanks. So glad you like it!

Thank you Dana, I've realized that it is so much easier seeing the color changes and reflections in white china than in china of a darker color.

Nancy, Thank you. Yes, I can see a series here, too.

Nice set up. The near/far relationship allows the eye to travel easily.

This is such a warm and welcoming painting - just as a tea party should be. Beautiful edges, Pam.

Joy, Thank you. I loved painting these.

Nancy, thank you! You saw it...another series!

Thank You Kathy, I too, like white china on wood.

Deborah, Thank you. I tried to set it up so that your eye continued to move around.

Thank you Claire. I'm always thinking about edges.
And lately thinking about tea parties!
