The Secret Tea Box

On the easel


palette of pale blues, greens, tones of yellow beneath
mossy browns and tinges of red

 chalky white texture on her dress..white charcoal

Waiting until she is alone..
she is reaching inside the secret tea box..

a message waits for her inside, 
and there 
she also leaves 
a letter 
that she has written.

Hi Kiki. Always when at your blog I find myself in a journey, a journey of life. I am always drawn into your pieces and today I wondered what the letter said when she put it in the teabox. Up to recently I did have a pen pal, a blogger pen pal. Those were the good old days. Excellent work as always kiki and I leave here inspired. Thank you. Happy PPF!

Loving your new gorgeous painting Victoria, by her expression she is definitely hoping nobody is looking at her. Wonderful mystery tale and glorious colourings. Enjoy the weekend my friend, hugs Annette x

I loved how she emerged from the canvas. Beautiful blues and greens, Victoria. And I am a fan both of tea and of handwritten letters!

I love the yellow tones--makes the painting that much more of another age. . . . ah, and one of your beautiful and extravagant hats--they seem portal in and of themselves.

And tea? Oh, yes I love tea (love it, love it), but I never had such an exciting exchange with it. I wonder what her secret note says . . .

Beautiful, Victoria. :)

padmaja said...

Wow, life itself is like that box, we never know what is in store till we open :-) I loved this palette, the blue green will make her find something very healing!

denthe said...

Emm in London said...

Yes! I love tea and I absolutely love handwritten letters and this post is just perfect for me. Just lovely.

carlarey said...

This is fantastic! I really love her expression, she is a little tentative, trying not to tip anyone off that she can reach right into such a source of magic.

Also, The Secret Tea Box totally sounds like the title of a C.S. Lewis book that I would have devoured as a child.

Lori Saul said...

I love the mystery of this new piece and your use of strong vertical lines both in the subject and background. This really adds wonderful definition and depth to the piece and a sense of anticipation. A festive feel!

Happy Holiday season Victoria!
