Afternoon Delight

"Afternoon Delight"  (Watercolor -- 8x10) © C. Eastwood, 2016
"Afternoon Delight" was a commissioned piece for a surprise anniversary gift.  I went back to a more traditional approach for this one, raiding my stash of old antique tea and coffee pots and selecting some rather lovely looking fruit to put together a still life.  What could be more refreshing in the afternoon than a cup of tea and some cherries or pears?  Possibly even a tangerine.

I am delighted to say that the surprise factor was a success and the new painting went off this afternoon to live at its new home. I love participating in this kind of thing.  It's really fun to see the joy on the faces of both the giver and the recipient.  Yay!!!
