You Want Some Tea

Through this piece, I wanted to depict the comfort I find in a cup of tea. Growing up, my father would ask me throughout the day if I wanted some tea. It is his remedy for all cases, physical and mental, as well as a way to show his love and care. I made this room look empty and odd to show how I would still feel at ease sitting down at that table drinking a cup of tea.
