Oil on Linen Panel

The title says it all, more tea! I can't seem to get enough, that and sitting next to any heating device (or in the sun) are my major winter activities. I suffer through winter, just holding my breath until it's over. Good thing I live in Rome where the winter is relatively mild.
So, while drinking one of my many cups of tea, I thought to paint this little gem. Easier said than done.. That green, what is that green?! Painting green man made objects, well it was a good challenge for me. I should paint more objects, I like how still they do sit after getting used to hurrying to capture something while landscape painting, still lives give me the chance to breath, relax and enjoy rather than feeling like I'm racing againt time.
In other news, my new easel has arrived along with the return of the sun, so you can expect some more Roman street scenes to come in the next few weeks (along with still man made objects)
I hope winter is treating you well and that you're drinking less tea than me.
