This painting invites the viewer to sit down, surrounded by plants and flowers, and enjoy a cuppa. It was inspired by a walk I took one evening at dusk. Basking in the golden light, I looked in to someones living room and saw the scene of monstera plants, flowering plants and a fireplace. Then I saw a shadow moving and I imagined the person was going to sit down and enjoy a cuppa. The feeling of ease it gave me motivated me to create a similar scene.
We live in very busy times and more often than not in cities where greenspace is becoming less available. My paintings are born from an intention of allowing the viewer to pause from the rush and enjoy the delights and soothing properties of nature.
