Lime green anyone? Green, Green, Green. This is an arrangement set up around an interesting piece of pottery made by my husband. The work is a gift to a special friend.
This still life was done as part of our "Paint Out Tuesday" - it was a little chilly for painting outdoors, so we took advantage of our hostess and painted indoors putting together this display. The fun little frog was added for just that "fun".

This Still Life setting are some of my memories or family memories which show some of my favorite colours - Blue, gold and Burnt Sienna. The dainty cup doesn't make for a hot cup of tea but it is pretty to serve. The Tea Urn is a family heirloom - a wedding gift to my grandparents married in England in the late 1800s. It was brought over on a ship in 1911 by my grandmother and three children who came to Canada to join Grandpa in his new venture in the new land of promise. It has stood the test of time and painting this was a fun experience for me. Maybe it brings back your family memories.
These grapes were so delicious, they lasted long enough to paint the picture. Yummm!!!
