Tea bag, lemon and matchbook oil painting

"Tea for Two" is a still life oil painting on canvas by Petaluma, CA based artist Samantha Buller. The work features a freshly unpacked tea bag accompanied by two orange slices on either side. The still life captures the light just illuminating the tea bag and fruit as they rest gently on the table.


The work comes framed in a natural wood floating frame that measures out to 10"w x 13"h and 9"w x 12"h unframed. 

Tea for Two - Samantha Buller

  • Samantha Buller currently lives in Petaluma, California with her husband and daughter. She received her BFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco and now paints full time in her home studio, and teaches workshops whenever possible. Originally from the Bay Area, her work reflects the beautiful light and modernism that is found in Northern California. Her work has been shown in the Hall of Justice in downtown San Francisco, in businesses and several galleries, as well as on the set of a prime time television show.

    She studied a semester abroad in Italy, which has greatly influenced her love and passion for the arts. “Italy was full of rich, golden colors. The culture is truly inspiring for any type of artist and to have the opportunity to paint while standing amongst an Italian sunflower field, should be one experienced by all.”

    Her love of color completely drives her work. She is inspired by the art of Wayne Thiebaud for his paint application, color, and composition, as well as the works of Raimonds Staprans for his layering techniques. She chooses to paint simplistic objects to create a clean, strong design, sharing interest with the negative space.
