Spot of Tea


Spot of Tea 9 x 12 oil

This was painted on Arches oil paper. I picked some simple shapes
that I'm familiar with and made it up without a reference.

This made it easier for me to focus on spots of color and color relationships,
which was the point of this painting.

I let go of worrying about a finished painting or following
reality too closely.
I find painting like this meditative and very relaxing.

Thank you for viewing my artwork.
I welcome and appreciate your comments.

  1. I love this painting, Bruce! I love still life paintings anyway, but when they're of the tea or coffee themed variety...even better.

    Beautiful...and with a dreamy meets warm meets happy feel to it.

  2. You're very welcome, Bruce. I hope to be able to comment on a more regular basis...still working on trying to figure out how to improve on my time-management 'skills' (or lack thereof lately).
