"Egg & Ginger Tea" for Japan




















6 x 6" oil on canvas panel SOLD

This is my submission for the daily paintworks Japan
challenge. All of the proceeds from this painting will
go to the Japanese Red Cross. You can bid on the
painting at the DPO site. I painted this a few months
ago but thought it
fit the "Home" theme since it includes
my Mom's antique teacup which is very special to me.
I love knowing that the
proceeds are going to
such a worthy cause.


The bid for this painting starts at $75.00. There are many
beautiful
paintings on the site. Together we can give a little
relief to the grief in Japan!

Gwen I saw your piece on the dailypainters challenge for the japan effort. I jumps right off the screen! It stands out from the crowd as being a cut above. So i browsed your blog...lots of very well done stuff here. I'll be keeping an eye on your work from now on.

Gorgeous colors and great compostion. You must do more of these...soon! I sometimes see fabric that I would like to send, and then I think, maybe Gwen will think its too weird. I should just do it anyway!
