A Cup of Tea, Apple, Brie…by Jan Lackey


A cup of tea, an apple, a piece of brie. My typical morning breakfast. I’m an early riser. It is usually still dark outside when I wake. I enjoy the tranquillity of the early mornings when the world around me is still sleeping.
This small still life of a morning breakfast is painted with acrylics. The drying time of acrylics is fairly rapid so I have to work quickly. The items are surrounded by darkness, illuminated by a single light, casting shadows on the table.
