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!
