TEA FOR FIVE



Morning tea with stretching. The sun rising slowly. Colder air through windows, it really is August when the warmer moments have left for the night, but come later in the morning. The color green is accompanied with still shyly hiding yellow. Fruits in rowan trees are turning from yellow to brighter orange, to red. Rose hips too. Evening walks are slowly turned off to darker landscapes. Birds go to bed early.

Tea for Five, an illustration for Kinfolk magazine. Words by Catherine Searle Williams. Thank you everyone for having me. Thank you everyone who have come here through Kinfolk, and written to me.

Morning train is passing by somewhere far. The town is waking up slowly. Time for another cup.

Have a good Thursday.

  4. I was looking at the online version of Kinfolk yesterday and was really happy to see your beautiful illustration there. Your watercolours are so sweet and distinctive, there's no mistaking them. Lovely!

    In my part of Scotland this morning we all woke up in a cloud of very thick fog. I am sure the morning train passed by long before I woke.
