This is another painting that captures an image of family life.
In this 2013 series I was focussing on the different family activities
that happen around a table. Parents all know the feeling of the peace
and happiness that comes from finally being alone together when the
children have gone to bed.
This painting shows the couple looking over some work together while
they have a cup of tea. At the time I painted it I loved the look of distortion
that happens from photos, and Skype images. And so the teapot is much
bigger than it would be.
Have a lovely weekend together. If you are parents with children at home,
I hope you have a lot of fun. And I hope you do get time to have tea alone.
