On The Easel - New Teacup Painting, "Miss Primrose"

"As the centerpiece of a cherished ritual, it's a talisman against the chill of winter, a respite from the ho-hum routine of the day."    ~Sarah Engler

Another teacup by "Phoenix China" , TF & S Ltd., England  (Thomas Forester & Sons)

I chose this one for it's pretty "spring" flower pattern of primroses, and spring really is just around the corner....

The Primrose is one of the earliest spring flowers, originating in Britian and Europe. In the language of flowers, it represents:  Happiness, satisfaction, I can't live without you.  For me, it just represents SPRING!

I had a look around the yard yesterday and bulbs are starting to peak out from under winter's mantle.... now if we could just get some sun!

Today's forecast calls for more rain....another gloomy, overcast day.  I will spend part of it tidying up my studio and starting a new sketch.

Did You Know.....   
Today tea is more popular than ever, and is the second most consumed drink in the world, losing only to water. Scientific studies are coming out regularly which are showing the health benefits of tea, which perfectly fits the idea of people trying to live more healthy lives. Tea is no longer expensive to buy, and is considered by some to be not just a drink, but a part of their lives.

 To see more in this series of paintings, click on the page at the top of the blog -"Teacup Series". All PAINTINGS will be available for purchase later this spring.

*Attend the Creston Museum's Old Fashioned Tea, this summer, and you could be the winner of one of my "Teacup" paintings!
