A Cozy Place for Tea


A cozy place for tea. Or maybe a beer!

I started this drawing in, believe it or not, 1999! I got the urge to finish it last night. This is a quaint sitting area for all friendly neighbors to come and enjoy. There's a real version of it in Silverado Canyon. Actually neighboring the house I lived in as a child, although this garden room sadly wasn't yet constructed when I was living there.

I finished up the pen and ink, then painted it quite colorful and finished it at about 2 in the morning. I went to bed a little too late last night. But I've always been more productive on a stay-up-late/wake-up-late kind of schedule. That's one reason the school year is such a drag to me.

Anyway I'm not sure... should it be made into a print, or card maybe? Just not sure yet.

It is absolutely a card to me. I love it. I could imagine someone giving or receiving this as a card for sure. Talk about starting things and then finishing them years later. Sometimes you are just at different place and your mind is just ready to finish. I always come back to some of my projects way later when I really feel good energy about them. I think they turn out better. Nonetheless, it is a gorgeous piece of work!

I could definitely see this as either a card or a print. I think this is just beautiful!!
That's so like me to start a project and finish it years later!!! I have lots of unfinished work!
