"Today I'd like to sit and sip, forget about the world a bit, ignore the things I have to do, and just enjoy a cup or two. Will you join me for some tea and company?"

By Laura Leeder
This pretty floral teacup and saucer dusted with roses is my newest treasure. I came across it last week in Cranbrook, while waiting for my husband to recover from a day surgery. As I was walking past the hospital gift shop, I spied it sitting on a shelf and I could almost hear it beckoning me in. A completed teacup painting flashed before my eye's and I knew immediately that it was mine! Here, I've paired it with violet primrose blossom's and cutwork linen from my personal collection.
I will"live with it" over the weekend and see if anything shout's out at me to be adjusted. I'm thinking the background need's to be a bit darker on the upper right side, and of course, a better photograph! The size is approximately 6.25 x 7.75 inches. I'm leaning towards Lady May as the title for this painting. Any suggestions?
Coming Soon ~ Reproduction prints
Next week, I will be posting listings for notecards and bookmarks of this painting in both my Etsy Shop and website.
"The Teacup Series" is available in original paintings, reproduction prints, notecards and bookmarks.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend! Your comment's are welcome.
