Early Morning Tea Time

Today for Paint Party Friday, I will show two watercolor paintings of the same still life subject. At the studio, there was an old chipped  blue and white enameled teapot begging to be painted. The teapot was filled with coleus leaves and some pretty pale silvery green leaves . Of course, the infamous mint colored tea tin was available to use too! LOL. I did these at two different times and they have a very delicate feel to them.

I will be off for a few days, but I have scheduled my Pink Saturday post and for Sunday, I will share with you some wonderful news.  Please check back to see what I have planned to share with you. I will respond to your lovely comments when I return om Monday.

So I hope you have a beautiful weekend and get to share a spot of tea with a cherished friend!
sincerely, gerri

  26. I like the first painting best because I like the visual of more leaves - they add some focus to the soft colors. Lovely pastels....

  29. This reminds me of my Mom, and how she likes to get up early and drink tea out of a beautiful china cup and appreciate the world before anyone else is awake.
