the wedding tea ceremony tea-set

oil on canvas pad. a study of the wedding tea ceremony tea set my parents used during their wedding 44 years ago. I've learnt a lot from this study. it was a gruelling first few hours, and towards the last one hour, i felt it looked so 'confined' so 'rigid' that i said to myself: what the heck, just do it the way i like it! so this is the way i like it, just focusing on what i feel is important and nothing clearly defined unless you look at it as a whole painting. it's tough to be a self-taught. Today will be my last day to experiment with painting - if i feel alright enough, as i'll be going back to the office tomorrow. but i think i'd better rest today. i do not want another re-relapse so soon!
