What are some symbols of elegance?

A ballerina...
A single rose...
A crystal vase...
A Siamese cat...
A China teacup...

I painted this little teacup for an Atelier Studio challenge.  Visit the site to see the varied styles that artists used to paint from the same image - all the same, yet all different.

Visit a cozy Etsy treasury (collection of related art pieces and vintage items) called Coffee with Mother or another called Time for Tea.  Then enjoy a whimsical treasury called T is for Tea.


  1. Beautiful teacup those wonderful colors. I think you can put Olivia in that cup! I absolutely fell in love with her. You'll have to tell me her breed! Again, beautiful work.

  2. I like your blog! Great painting with this teacup!...Daniel

  3. This painting would be beautiful as jewelry as print on dress as sky :)
    It brings nice memories.
