First Pastel



I tried a simple pastel painting. The thought of not having to clean up was appealing.
There are some good tutorials on YouTube that helped.

Metal Cup

Oil on canvas

Some health issues  kept me away from painting for a while. Things are better now and I chose this cup as my first return subject. I've used it in many paintings and sketches and it still appeals to me.
It's great to be painting again.

Yellow Teapot


Oil on canvas

This teapot has been in the family for as long as I can remember. It was usually put into service on cold winter evenings in front of the TV.
It makes a good cup of tea, but it's especially distinguished by the melody played by the built-in music box that's activated when the teapot is tilted during pouring.
We could never make out the melody, but assumed that it must be Tea for Two.
