"Pink Rose Tea" Still Life Painting

"Pink Rose Tea," oil, 20"h x 16"w, ©2016 Jill Banks
Some surviving pink roses from Valentine's Day kept calling my name ... and made it into a painting after collecting a few friends (crossword puzzle, extra set of reading glasses, hydrangeas, soft green roses and a spot of tea). Awfully civilized looking.

On Saturday, Randy and I delivered two paintings to a collector's home ... finding the perfect spots, hanging them with care.  In the process, we also rehung other pieces they had collected of mine.  Two points ... We LOVE delivering and hanging the art you purchase. And, artwork does not need to stay in that perfect spot forever.

I move artwork in my home often and love how it greets me in each space. Play.
