Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge

Tea Party
Well, I've set a new record for myself in being late
with the weekly challenge at Inspiration Avenue.
Never been THIS late before...but finally here I am.
No excuses, but I will just say I was running hideously late already,
and then spilled a huge vat of paint water all over the
newly refinished floor in my art room...
which flowed behind and underneath a heavy storage unit, 
which had to be emptied out, 
and moved with help from my son, 
and all the icky water cleaned up.

Ugh. And I'm sure everyone is waiting anxiously
at Inspiration Avenue to see the week's entries
for Tea Time, since I am the host this week.
So no more wordiness, but I will hastily get over there
and post the entries. I've seen them all,
and each one is fabulous!

(I could surely use a cup of tea right about now :)


  1. What a lovely painting! So fresh and whimsical. I love it. Hope you don't mind but I went ahead and drew up the challenge results thinking something may have kept you from doing so. hugs!

  2. I am in total awe this is just incredible. Well done Maggie. So gorgeous.
    I'm making you a cup of tea as we speak (and as I'm a Brit it will be done properly... I've heard all about that dodgy tea you have over there....)!!

  3. Maggie, for goodness sake you deserve to put your feet up & have that cuppa. I love this painting it's so breezy and colourful, it actually had me remembering getting dressed up & sipping tea with my old aunty when I was 6 or 7, it really is gorgeous :)

  4. so, so sweet! little girls just so love tea parties :)

  5. Late or not, this is a gorgeous piece. The flags, the little girls and their tea party all come together to make a fun and joyous painting. I hope you managed to get all that paint off your newly redone floor.

  6. Wow, and I am usually always the late one! Glad you made it because I LOVE your entry. It is so beautifully done that it takes you right into the picture to a childhood memory of a tea party!
    Beautiful colors, just the whole package!


  7. I LOVE your tea party- it's wonderful! And I bow in awe to how well you did the background area- landscapes just escape me- can't seem to get a handle on the perspective!

  8. Wonderful breezy summer feeling to it. Makes me want to have a tea party but too hot right now!


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
