High Tea

To plan or not to plan.....well I had an idea of a theme called High Tea with cups and lacy cloths. Some bits worked some a bit ho-hum but there wasn't the same flow that usually happens with a freestyle, no-plan tangle connection. Samuel likes the colour, Heidi likes the cupcakes and I like the cake and stand. I think cropped into sections I will print some cards.

Size : 74cm x 59cm  (29" x 23")

  1. This is beautiful! None of it looks ho-hum to me. It looks like it could be an illustration to Alice in Wonderland. How long did this masterpiece take you to create?

    1. Thank you Zoe, everything is certainly topsy turvy, it took about 5 days on and off to do.

  2. Wow!!!! This is really WOW! Amaising! I thought that You couldn't paint this very quickly, then I read Your answer that 5 days. If I'd paint this it takes 5 weeks or 5 months.

  7. I love the "whimsy" of it all! I agree with the "Alice and Wonderland" look of it all! Shelly, for the record, I have yet to see ANYTHING you have done that is "ho-hum!" I love this piece!! Free-style is fun and I think you captured it here!! Thanks for sharing!!

  9. It's charming, but I agree that it doesn't have the usual free-flowing feel of most of your pieces. I also find that trying to create something specific really stymies my style and focus.

    That being said, I do love the three "stacked" bowls. So cool!
