Tea Time, 8x8 oil painting

Tea Time
8x8 oil painting
on Raymar cotton panel

My mother gave me several teacups that have been in the family a long time, and I decided to use them as painting reference.  The lemon was fresh off the tree in my back yard.

This is my Day 1 painting of Leslie Saeta's painting-a-day challenge for January.  So far, so good.

This painting is available for purchase on Daily Paintworks.

Happy New Year to everyone!

For Claudine, 10x8 oil painting

For Claudine
10x8 oil painting
on Raymar cotton panel

​This painting is for Claudine, someone I've known for 50 years.  Claudine and I went to high school together; and after high school, Claudine opened a successful beauty salon in Burbank, California.  When my son Chris was 14, he went with me to the salon one day, and he saw Julie -- Claudine's daughter.  It was love at first sight; and many years later, when they were in their 30s, Chris and Julie were married.  Now Claudine and I share two adorable grandsons.  She is a caring, generous and special person.
