Victorian Tea - Calvert, TX___20 x 16 oil on linen___SOLD at auction
Yesterday I attended a Victorian Tea in Calvert, TX, and painted the festivities for a couple of hours! This is an annual event, and I was asked, along with Robin Cheers to paint the events of the weekend. Robin did the evening shift at the gala...I worked at this afternoon tea. The day was PERFECT, the people were BEAUTIFUL, and the setting was inspiring!...My thanks to the Hensarlings, who bought this one at auction, and introduced me to Zack and Rompy, the young man and his dog on the upstairs porch!

Saturday, Oct. 24 in Waxahachie, TX at the Texas Country Reporter Festival

It was a beautiful painting. This picture doesn't do it justice. I am sure the home owners (buyers) are thrilled! They should be!

I am really enjoying your paintings. This one of a Victorian Tea is so charming, but I like all the landscapes on Last Year on the Farm and your blog with all the small paintings. Best of luck. Ginny.
