TEA LEAF AND COFFEE BEAN

My still lives from the Tea Time Series are telling stories about people. Although people stay out of the picture, their presence is felt. It was them who set up a table, baked a cake, put flowers in a vase and poured tea into a cup. They can be back any minute. It’s about someone’s tea party, a birthday celebration or a get-together with a close friend. The paintings are bubbling and bursting with colours. I use bold outlines and bright colours along with a strong composition to set a mood and to create an inviting warm feeling of a tea party. “You are here for a treat. Enjoy good company, aromatic tea and freshly baked/painted cakes”. Bent crawling spoons, dancing cups and tea pots add dynamics to otherwise would be static still life paintings.
