About the oil painting “Cracked”
Oil painting & drawing are my primary focus; preferred subjects are figures, florals, teacups, satin & organza bows, hot air balloons & skyscapes… among other new subjects I’m developing. This video presents the launch of a new oil painting subject, “TeaCUPS” Here’s a little on my inspiration for the subject… The custom of “having tea” is ubiquitous around the world; a ritual of preparing, serving & savouring tea, sharing one experience often as a prelude to another. Among the other objects & underlying ideas, my collection of teacup paintings in this exhibition represents my personal experiences & discussions that occurred over tea. I recently traveled to Great Britain & Ireland to connect with my roots & ponder treasured memories sharing tea & conversation, especially with my mother.
