What a beauty and a perfect quote to go along with it. I love the reds and the way you've handled values and light in this piece. Of course, the green makes the red just stand out. I am transported to my ideas of Britain...

Now you are getting down to serious matters, tea! I drink a mug of tea an hour.

This teapot looks perfect to me .. a perfect red and 'er just my-cup-of-tea!

When I was flying, the cabin crew put cup after cup at my elbow, but they never broke me ... apart from .... the addiction.
This is such a happy painting!

The play of complementary colors is dynamic Celeste. I like these simple still lifes you're doing lately. They are powerful.
