New painting, "Spring Morning Tea":

The morning sun rises through the green bamboo. A beagle dog curls up on the ledge of the teahouse window. Steam rises from a black tetsubin (Japanese cast iron teapot), a cup sitting nearby, waiting to be filled. A few daisies sit jauntily in a purple pottery vase. Inspired by the Japanese tea ceremony. This zen landscape is an original acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped stretched canvas (the 3/4" sides are finished off in brown acrylic)--no need to frame. It has been lightly varnished to protect the paint and preserve the lustrous colors. The copyright watermarks on the image do not appear on the actual painting.
