Lately I love to paint teapots....it seems to make them come alive with a fat little belly (or a ruffled skirt), feet..a crooked arm..and the other arm pointing to who knows what! Some are plain..some are very dressed up...some strong, some delicate. I've painted this one several times...I think I like this version the best so far! This one is little...5" x 7" oil on canvas Raymar panel.

It's tough to finish a painting a day..so far I'm one behind...an installation and board meeting took time away from the easel...but I definately like doing this! My coffee tasted soooo good this morning I thought I would paint something about that...here is my favorite cup..it is white with red inside..and the surface has a raised pattern. Again...this is on a really rough linen panel. 8" x 10" oil.

This is still life no. 2 from my "still-life-a-day' week. Wine and apples...a nice dessert. This linen is rougher than I usually paint on...but I liked it...sort of forced me to lay on the paint thicker...requires more bravado in my color mixing tho. Fun. 8" x 10" oil on linen panel.

I am painting a still life-a-day this week because I have been painting from photos for a while and need to get back into painting from life. This little teapot is really old. It belonged to my husbands' great grandmother. I love the gold handle and spout...and the irregular scalloped edges. This one is 9" x 12" oil on canvas Raymar panel.
