In Search Of A Title For My Newest Teacup Painting

"Today I'd like to sit and sip, forget about the world a bit, ignore the things I have to do, and just enjoy a cup or two.  Will you join me for some tea and company?"

This pretty floral teacup and saucer dusted with roses is my newest treasure.  I came across it last week in Cranbrook, while waiting for my husband to recover from a day surgery.  As I was walking past the hospital gift shop, I spied it sitting on a shelf and I could almost hear it beckoning me in.  A completed teacup painting flashed before my eye's and I knew immediately that it was mine!  Here, I've paired it with violet primrose blossom's and cutwork linen from my personal collection.

I will"live with it" over the weekend and see if anything shout's out at me to be adjusted.  I'm thinking the background need's to be a bit darker on the upper right side, and of course, a better photograph!  The size is approximately 6.25 x 7.75 inches.  I'm leaning towards Lady May as the title for this painting.  Any suggestions?   

Coming Soon ~ Reproduction prints

Next week, I will be posting listings for notecards and bookmarks of this painting in both my Etsy Shop and website.  

"The Teacup Series" is available in original paintings, reproduction prints, notecards and bookmarks.   

Visit my website or my Etsy Shop 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!  Your comment's are welcome.

Creatively Yours,

Oh that's a beauty, Laura, and I love the temp title too! Not much tweaking required, methinks.

Absolutely gorgeous. 'Lady May' is a good title, I think.

Win and Eileen, thank you both! I'm thinking Lady May it is!

Laura - this is beautiful. I can see why that particular tea cup and saucer would call to you. The flowers and tablecloth just give it such a lovely touch. Always amazed at how well you draw and paint those ellipses. Just always enjoy seeing your teacups and saucers. Take care and have a great week.

Thank You Debbie! Oh, I struggle with them. Both my pencil and eraser get a lot of use!
