Barbara Muir © 2014When I teach I dream all the way home of a
warm cup of tea. That's why when I saw
my friend's photo of her daughter I asked
if I could paint it. The milk carton and
teapot loom large and the little girl looks
so contented sitting with the huge cup of
tea in her hands in the late afternoon sun.
Have an enjoying-the-ideal-treat day.
warm and cozy painting Barbara! You are so good at faces:) Have a great weekend.
Nice work! I love a good cup of tea, you have described the feeling beautifully.
Thanks so much. I am having a super weekend, and I hope you are too!
Thank you. It's been a particularly long week, and driving home on Friday night I was aching for a hot cup of tea of cocoa. I'm a coffee drinker, but love sleep!!!
A delightful, tender homage to this little girl holding a warm soothing drink, which at this time of year makes more than perfect sense several times a day.
Thank you so much. Yes at this time of year I could just spend my life standing over the kettle, making cup after cup of coffee, tea and cocoa. But not putting the cocoa on my face. That was funny when I went to the art store for a brush, and had to explain that it was for makeup because my other brush was full of cocoa!
What can I say? The scientist's daughter.
Thank you. Thank you so much. She is such a beautiful girl -- I loved this image. I'm glad that she was content. That's what I tried to capture.
