"Quiet Moments", oil, 6 x6, $85
Today is Day 5 of the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge that I signed on to be apart of with Leslie Saeta and over 260 other artists.
My theme is: Connecticut Treasures.
Over the past year I've taken so many shots of places, events, people and things all around Connecticut and I'm looking forward to sharing these inspirations with you.
Capturing a Quiet Moment
It's Sunday evening, 5 days into the challenge and I'm starting to get a rhythm going. So far I've painted every painting in the late evening which is unusual for me because most days I'm in my studio real early sometimes before the sun is up. The evening seems be the quiet time, a time to reflect on the day and just unwind... with a cup of tea. If you're a tea drinker a must visit is The Green Tea House in Blue Back Square, West Hartford, CT. I've blogged about this place before. My daughter V and I just love stopping in for a hot Pink Cherry Cider Tea with a little honey. The service is wonderful there, everyone is so friendly and helpful. There are dozens of beautiful tea sets on display but what my daughter and I love to do is sniff each jar of sample teas. And for all my out of state friends, The Green Tea House has a great website for ordering teas online. (Link below). So don't forget to take a break today, capture a few of your own quiet moments for yourself today.... you're worth it. :)
