Easter at Home!!

April 22, 2011 | 2 Comments

 Hard to believe but I am not going away or trying to do lots of crazy things this Easter… I am actually going to TRY to relax.

So what better way than a sleep in and SLOW teacup sketch to start my day. My Royal Albert 100 year teaset was completed last night with the arrival of the plate set for the 1950s-1990 half of the set…so naturally I had to sketch one of them.

Strangely the plate set is a dessert plate – larger plate than a normal smaller plate (bread and butter?) that fits with the saucer. Obviously designed for a sit down high tea where you can load your plate with goodies! Drinking Earl Grey and Lavender Tea with this Lilac pattern (this is the 1990s pattern). Not sure I am making sense this morning- I sign that I need to take it easy….. BTW it is NICE to have real watercolour paper!

Hope everyone has a good Easter – safe travels for those that are going away.

Like Christmas I do not observe Easter. I celebrate the indescribably wonderful gift of eternal life given to me by Christ through His death and resurrection EVERY week on Sunday, resting from normal activities (including sketching!) and enjoying a wonderful day of worship – what I refer to as the Lord’s Day.

John 3.16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Thanks so much for this post. It's nighttime my time, and I just got off the phone with a relative~~ ugly call (not my fault) trying to reconcile a relationship; anyways, I needed your post as a soother and a reminder before bed of the Saviour's love. Thanks.

    Gorgeous sketch of the tea on the backdrop of the scripture! But I have a difficult time calling your works of art "sketches"!
