This soft pastel painting, “Anyone for tea” resulted from a fun few days in the studio. I gathered together a collection of vessels, flowers, and props to create a generous still life piece. When the light spilled across the arrangement, I knew that this piece was going to offer me a wonderful experience.
The items in this piece are pieces given to me over time from friends and family. Simply adding a few extra props completed the arrangement. I wanted to create a corner of relative calm (top right-hand side) so those thoughts could drift as they do when you take time for a cup of tea.
“Anyone for tea?” came together beautifully as a soft pastel painting.
This piece is now available as a reproduction as well as the original being still available for sale.
The listed price is for the original piece. Frame available upon negotiation.
When caring for any fine art piece there are some pointers to consider. It is best not to hang artwork of any kind in direct sunlight so as to eliminate any concerns of colour changes due to the damaging UV rays of the sunlight. Any artwork or photographs framed under glass that is in direct light can also develop condensation under the glass which may lead to damp concerns within the artwork. If possible ensure a good flow of air around the artwork to assist with reducing any chances of moisture-related concerns in a humid environment. Avoid bumping the frames of artwork as this will impair the visual experience of the artwork.
Framers do offer glass options that provide a UV filter.
It should be noted that in particular, soft pastel paintings, require the least amount of restoration over time of any fine art medium.
To clean the glass on the artwork, use a soft damp cloth, never a dry one, and rub gently using an ammonia-free glass cleaner. These are readily available in most supermarkets.
Wipe your frames periodically with a soft cloth being mindful to wipe the top ledge of the frame. Dust will eventually etch into any frame, so removal of dust will ensure a long life for the frame.
