Earl Gray has left the building.

Earl Gray has found a new home, so thought I'd post his picture one last time. I love tea and everything associated with it. Cups, teapots, (yes, I have a collection of teapots) and all else you can think of. I really should do a series and get it over with. This has been on my mind for quite a while so guess I will get started.

Have you ever had a project that just kept playing in your head and when you finally started it you wonder what took you so long. Can't decide if this is human nature or a artist procrastination. What are your thoughts on this subject? Yes, I do want to know.


  1. Love this one, Blanche - especially the blue color changes in the mug.
    I have an ongoing series with teapots,cups or mugs. Same as with birds nests. Love knowing that it is something I can look for to add to my collection.
    Procrastination - not really, I see something and play around with it in my head for a while - some longer than others, but it is a valid mind-job for an artist.

  2. Your explanation makes sense especially since we are not the 9 to 5pm sort of people. I shall enjoy this mental play in my head and then see if it works on canvas!
