                                                          16" x 12" Oil on Canvas

After a month of travel and visits from family and friends, our home is almost back to normal and I'm  finally back at the easel.  Of course a "warm up" piece was needed - a quick one.  My trusty old teapot is always ready to pose one more time, so  grabbed a green bottle, some ageing grapes and lemons and the brushes came alive!  I had a similar sketch in an old sketchbook...and after a few wipe outs,  it began to come together.  Ok, so this "quickie" took a week to complete!   As teapot glazes dried, I did work on other paintings which will be posted soon.

Feels great being back in the studio!
