"Tea Time" Original Art Teacups Oil Painting. Lovely English Teacups whimsically stacked as if waiting for the tea party to begin. Modern, still life Fine Art depicting elegant pink, peach and white, and light blue cups. The dainty teacups have an almost 3-D effect, creating an absolutely gorgeous oil painting. Inspired by ones desire to slow down, take a breath, and simplify life by the partaking in the long held tradition of tea time. This modern, impressionism painting is painted in serene shades of fresh blush pinks / peach, soft grey, light blue, white and a touch of gold on a soft taupe, cream, grey background. Contemporary, modern, expressionism, gallery fine art. A stunning, beautiful piece of artwork perfect for home decor. (The companion painting shown in the last photo is "Her Cherished Roses" which is found here, and it also gores very well with "High Tea" if you would like to purchase the pair.)

Testimonials

  • "Every morning when I open my eyes, this painting is the first thing I see. It is positively GORGEOUS. I own two Christine Bell works of art -- an angel giclee and this original. They are stunning! "Full Bloom" is exquisite in its color palette and attention to detail. I wish you could see the way it picks up the light during different times of day. I truly can't say enough about Christine's talent or spirit. She is a DELIGHT to work with and her art reflects the hope and love she radiates. The original was delivered on time and in perfect condition. On her suggestion, I chose a floating frame which really makes it "pop," however, it really doesn't need a frame at all. I get so many compliments on it, but most of all I derive a sense of peace from it every time I walk by. Thank you, Christine!!!!!! I'll be back for more...xo"

  • "What a surprise when my wife and I arrived home tonight to find our order had been delivered earlier today, ...only 9 days to deliver from USA to Scotland. As for the painting itself, Sea Breeze is absolutely stunning. The delicate colouring of the abstract design is beautiful, just what we wanted. We are so satisfied with the quality of the product that we have placed an order for another print tonight."

  • "This is the fourth painting Christine has created for me / my clients by commission and I must say, she never disappoints! She is so easy to work with. We had a particular muted color we were trying to pick up in the artwork for the main foyer of a large Interior Design Project I am managing, and Christine was happy to work with the color samples I sent her and incorporate them into her amazing artwork. The commissioned painting option I would highly recommend for any one needing a custom painting size, or specific colors to fit into their space. She was even happy to frame it for us. I will definitely be using her for more of my clients projects!"

  • "My new 48x48" XL Canvas Print of "Just Breathe" arrived yesterday and it is absolutely gorgeous! I already have it hung in my living room since it arrived all ready to hang. It is stunning, and looks just like shown in the listing. It was packaged well, and arrived in a timely manner. I highly recommend and I can't wait to add another painting of Christine's to my growing collection very soon!"
