Tea Bowl and Fruits

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it as the axis on which the world revolves.
~Thich Nhat Hanh

This painting from 1921 speaks to me. Something about the simple comfort of the composition and the interplay of the colors.

Tea Bowl and Fruits
by GyoshÅ« Hayami (1894—1935)

I agree...there is a certain serenity implied in the painting. And the quotation about drinking tea makes me want a cup right now. :-)
