Artist's Statement

Tea is not tea is not tea. Tea is a moment set aside, a receptacle into which reminiscences or plans are poured. Having tea or coffee can involve anything except the hectic pace of every day. There can be music, plans, regrets, good or bad news to share or recover from. Even the teacup is not necessarily a teacup, but is frequently a coffee cup, or (rarely) a boullion cup, and always is a character in the drama of the painting. The cups and pots and creamers are from many lands and of many persuasions like people in our cities. What are they doing here? What do they say to each other in the garden of the tablecloth?
