This is done in acrylic paint on canvas, and it reminds us to relax and enjoy life, to take time out and daydream.
beautiful artwork, great still life and beautifully rendered, great colours too. hugsxxx
Just simply lovely work. Very fresh and clever colours.
Many thanks Lynne, I love to paint with oils also, and have found these wonderful new paints that are odourless which is fantastic because I was allergic to normal oil paint.

Very gorgeous! I find every item on the table looks special…especially the teapot,looks so vintage chic :D
Thnaks Ellen, these were some teapots I collected when my hubby ans I travelled overseas, the square one, was from Thailand and the other lovely little round one was from Japan, I kinda have a thing for teapots, guess it is like you sharing a cuppa tea or coffee with a friend is very special.
Lovely lovely work Lorna xx
Thank you, I sometimes set up a still life with things I love and get so much joy from painting. xx
wow this is beautiful!!
Thanks Linda, i love working with oil, but found i was allergic to the fumes and the turps but I have now got onto odourless paint and turps, so it is great.
Thank you Susan for your comment.
you display such skill lornaThis is very beautifulThe colour so lush!
Why thank you Karin, I love your term so lush!I certainly have tried everything in art, and love it all.
Love this Lorna! I love the fact that you are so diverse in your styles and media!! (I guess I relate to that because I am too! LOL)Beautiful still life!!!
Thanks Alex, you are right i feel it is good to be diverse, because sometimes my mood dictates what kinda work i do,
I’m living in Thailand now….and they have such beautiful ceramics stuff here, love teapots too, I love tea!! :D
At one stage my hubbyTony thought we would life in Thailand, quite a few years ago he was offered a job there, but I felt it would be too difficult with 4 kids and the traffic jams they had to cope with then, i’m sure our lives would have been different if we had.
Beautiful work of ART. Excellent
Thank you, this is one of my favourite oil paintings, one of my Grandmothers vases and teapots that I collect.
