‘Tetley Tea Time’
5″ by 7″ daily pastel painting, unframed
Every day, 2 times a day, at the exact same time each day, my parents have tea time. It’s an old Dutch tradition which has remained theirs as long as I can remember.
The tea is always in a teapot under the flame of a tea light.
I haven’t appreciated it lately until after I finished this painting. There’s something nostalgic about it in our technologically driven culture.
The original paintings hues are slightly different. My scanner doesn’t like to give me the cerulean hues I always want. But it’s very close.
