The Tea Party

Ocean Beach Pleasure Park

As is common with most seaside towns we have a fairground, the Ocean Beach Pleasure Park, it is not open all year, but certainly for about two thirds of the year when the weather is good. We also have a young man in South Shields who has gathered a reputation for outstanding air brush art, his name escapes me right now, but his work is now seen in fixed and travelling fairgrounds as well as on many seaside reorts' shop fronts and in individual commissions for trucks!

Here is one of his earlier pieces depicting Lewis Carrol's "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" from Alice in Wonderland. (Lewis Carrol - now there's another story relating to South Tyneside -I'll save it for another day.)

Awesome teapot. I love the paint job. That young man is obviously very talented!
 
mais c'est Disneyland, elle est superbe cette théiere. Allumer elle doit etre tres "Kitch"


but it is Disneyland, it is superb this teapot. To light it must be very “Kitch”

 
Nice capture, Curly. The colour is spectacular
