Blue Tea Pot and Lemons- SOLD

Click on image to enlarge.

6"x 8" Oil on canvas mounted on board.

I love shopping in thrift stores for interesting objects to paint. Recently I found this cute little tea pot in a robin egg blue. I love the shape and was excited about pairing it with lemons. This still life was set up in a shadow box that I just set up in an old wooden box, but I really need to expand my set up to be a bit more versatile. I might attempt to make a "box" similar to the one Carol Marine uses as seen in her blog - posts on February 4, 7 and again on May 26. Can you believe it is made out of PVC pipe! I ought to be able to handle that!

You sure can control the paint. I wait for paintings to be posted. Bonita lemons and other stuff.

Thanks, that's the nicest thing you could say to me! (the part about waiting to see my work).

I like this little teapot. It reminds me of that children's ditty - "I'm a little tea pot short and stout. This is my handle and this is my ... other handle, well I'll be damned, I'm a sugar bowl."
