Tea and Lemon, a study in blue & yellow

SOLD "Tea with Lemon", 12x16 , oil on Raymar panel
This still life begs to ask the question, "Where's the biscotti?" Indeed, I had to take the biscotti jar and its contents away as I painted this picture, because I simply cannot resist dipping stick after stick of delicious biscotti into my tea. Normally, it's not much of a problem, but when painting it's best to just keep a paintbrush in the hands!

The tablecloth has a nice feeling of rough starched linen to it, and the grouping of the plain blue cup, bottle of water, biscotti jar lid and yellow lemons, make a statement of simplicity that is both soothing and elegant at exactly the same time.
