Memories of Afternoon Tea
Memories Of Afternoon Tea
6x6in oil on canvas Not for sale.
At the memorial service for my friend, Lorraine, her daughters had beautiful
flower arrangements placed in her collection of teacups.
It was a wonderful idea and the florist did a spectacular job.
I was one of the lucky guests given one to take home.
I say lucky because it brings back special memories of our
many afternoon teas together.
Sentimental me managed to keep my corsage from the event
and brought it home.
It seemed just right to place it as a companion to the cup.
The two white items were competing for the focal point
so I made them different shades of white and picked a red
background to go with the roses on the cup - making the
cup stand out more...hopefully!
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
