If one is not already keeping a consistent mindfulness practice, many have started one these past few months. It is a way to calm the mind, inhabit stillness, and sometimes invite new dreams and ideas. While not outwardly labelling the activity as one of mindfulness, Stephen May engages in thoughtful observation, focusing on his cup of tea and paying close attention to his break time vistas. These drawings are the products of his days musing around his tea, and may they bring you tranquility and a warming sense of peace.
Stephen May’s The Tea Series is on display at Gallery 78 until Saturday, November 28, 2020, and always online at www.gallery78.com.
