Enjoying the Cool.
Think of summer evenings as a child, when my father and his neighbours would get together and chat with each other. In the centre of the scene are three farmers, forming a diagonal pint-sized structure. To avoid overwhelming space, porcelain, tea sets and tea bowls are painted to emphasize the theme of drinking tea and taking a cool drink. The dark colour of the tree trunks, the green of the leaves, and the pink, vermilion and orange colours of the figures' clothing are all infused with the blue starry moonlight, creating the beauty of a quiet and rural night scene.
