Bubble Gum Tea

Bubble Gum Tea  6 x 6 oil on board
I love the colors of this tea towel with my purple tea pot, but it was
a little tricky to paint.  The problem was that the towel
colors were very dark, even in the light so it was hard to
create a light/ dark pattern when everything was so
close to the same colors.
I just decided to have fun with the surface texture, the mark
making and the colors.
The colors reminded me of bubble gum flavors: grape,
cherry, cotton candy- is that a flavor?


  1. Great to see your fabulous paintings back on your blog. This one was worth waiting for.
    Love the colors. They look sun drenched.

  2. Thank you so much Julie! It feel good to be posting again. Loved your painting for the DPW challenge on painting emotion.
