This is "The Hour of Tea" by American artist, Frederick Frieseke (1874-1939).
I've been sharing art work like this on my FaceBook page and thought I should be
sharing them here on tea day, too.
Frieseke was a prominent American Impressionist painter.
Born in Owosso, Michigan, he later studied at the Art Institute of Chicago,
the Art Students League in New York City and later in Paris.
Frieseke's art has been described as "Decorative Impressionism".
He often painted women in lush, colorful surroundings like his garden which was tended by his wife.
Daffodils have arrived and for me that means Spring is really here.
I'm drinking Earl Grey in a Blue Willow cup and saucer by Churchill.
Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea.
A big thank you to our tea party hosts:
