Yes, I know... These pieces are very different from what you are used to seeing from me.... I did these over a year ago, for a Designer's Showroom.... I was given scads of photos from which to choose, and this scene spoke to me... As a kid, I lived in Hong Kong for a couple of years, and have visited China Several times, so this scene is one very familiar to me. ... While different in Style and Palette than my more Naive Paintings, this image still contains all the elements that thrill me to be able to capture.... This Tea a Shop is filled to the Brim with all manner of Teapots, Jars, and other Tea Related Merchandise. The canvas is finished around the edges in Black, and is shipped unframed.
