Painting: "Tea or Coffee?"

I was waiting until after the Coffee and Tea art exhibition opening night to post this painting: "Tea or Coffee?".

This is the 'tea' half:



It's acrylic on 300gsm watercolour paper. The background was inspired by the backgrounds in paintings by Debi Hubbs, one of my favourite artists.

This gives you an idea of how it is framed (in a very dark brown frame), yes I know I didn't follow the correct art photography rules (see an earlier post), you can see the flash glare, and it's not aligned properly, tsk tsk:

Good work Bronwyn. The two together in one frame is very effective :)

I love the whimsical quality of these, Bronwyn. The cups look like little coffee and tea people! Nice work!

These are really charming. Great colors and dynamic composition.

I really like these two pieces! I have this battle all the time. Coffee or tea? Coffee is my first love, especially in the morning, but come evening, then it's usually a cup of chamomile tea!

Wonderful paintings. I love the background. Very nice. I also must say that I really like Hubbs' art too. The fact that I love roosters and chickens help, but she uses a great color pallet!
Love Erin~
