"Tea For One"

This is the first painting  I've done using my newly constructed 'light box.'  It's a 24 x 24 inch square made with white plastic pipe and a white sheet over it and a black cloth over that to keep out room light.  I then placed two lights in the color corrected florescent and the other incandescent low wattage.  It is fashioned after Carole Marine creation.  I still need to get a heavy duty tripod after I put a plywood base on it so it can be raised and lowered.  At present it just sits on a table.  The painting is oil on mylar 6 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches.
