Mid-Morning Tea

Different light angles and intensities come naturally through the course of a day.  For me, tea also comes in various forms and intensities throughout my day.  It stands to reason that the next few subjects be teacups.  It also allows me to stage a rematch against Perspective, my deadly nemesis.

My mid-morning cup of tea happens around 9:30, just as the morning sun stretches around the south end of the house and warms up the screened porch.  I like to be out there with my sketchbook watching birds and animals that wander through the garden.  A cup of tea is the perfect companion!
