Plenty of Tea

It seems I have not been in my studio as much this past week even though I have two new "Infusions" to show you. Each presented me with new challenges and I spent two days on each work but I learnt so much from them and it gives me confidence to know I can get the result I want if I persevere.

I have never had a cup of Chai tea but have a little sample sachet and composed this work from the idea of its ingredients list: Black tea,cloves,cardamom,cinnamon pieces, star anise, ginger pieces. Serve with Milk and Honey.

Just Peppermint from T2 is my favorite studio drink. I make many, many cups per day and probably get to drink about three and the others are stone cold by the time I remember to stop painting and pick up the cup.

  8. Love both of these, Lorraine, although I'm partial to Chai - I drink it all the time, and your painting truly captures its essence. Loving this series!

  9. Beautiful! I do this with my coffee - sip a bit and then get busy with something else (even just blogging), and it has to be reheated!
