Celebrating Happiness ~ In A Teacup
"Forever Your's" Watercolour Teacup Painting by Laura Leeder, 2016 SOLD
This pretty and delicate teacup painting was done as a commission for a wedding gift for this past summer. The client's only request was that I include a daisy in the teacup painting, as this is one of the brides favorite flowers.
White daisies symbolize innocence, purity, happiness, new beginnings and true love. (An ideal flower to include in a wedding bouquet.) The teacup pattern is inspired by one in a friend's collection and while it is not an exact match it is similar to the original including the pink ribbon. When I inquired of the color of the bridesmaid dresses and learned that were pink, I knew I had chosen the perfect teacup!
The ribbon woven through the flowers on the teacup symbolizes "bringing together" or "tying the knot" as in marriage. The lace cloth was also chosen for it's circular "daisy like" pattern. Forever Your's ~ is a celebration of happiness!
Forever Your's is available in a limited edition giclee' print and notecard.

Said the other, little daisy, "I am very well content To live simply in the meadow where the sun and rain are sent; Where the bees all gather sweetness, and the dew falls on my head, And the radiance of the moonlight is all around me shed. "The grass and clover blossoms admire my beauty all day long, As I listen to the music of a bird's delightful song..." - Gertrude Tooley Buckingham
