Tea Party

Tea Party - 6 x 8 Oil on Canvas Board

Well I'm branching out to new dimensions: 6 x 8.  I've tried a few others at this size and they just didn't work out—it's more of a challenge for me because I'm so used to the square format.  I think this composition works.  Unfortunately the photo is a tiny bit washed out in the upper left—it's hard to get a good photo when the paint is still wet.

This painting is now part of the fundraiser "Circle of Art" to benefit Food Gatherers of Washtenaw County. It will be on display at Saline Picture Frame Company until May 20th when all art will be auctioned.  All proceeds will go to the charity.  The link to view and bid:

  1. Another one with great brush work! And, yes, I think the composition works well. I like how you cropped it, balanced out the upper corners, created movement and kept the interest in the center. Well done.
