"Quiet Time" is something that's all too rare
in today's busy lifestyles. In this piece, Dempsey brings together a cup
of tea and basket of just-ripe strawberries, the perfect early-morning
repast. A blue and white pitcher of spring roses completes the scene,
which was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Lexington
Phone Company. Note the phone book and The Dispatch, the local newspaper.
