This is another attempt at painting my recently re-discovered copper teapot.  I wish my Mom who gave it to me was here to see my paintings of the teapot.  The year she gave the teapot to me I had unknowingly just purchased another copper teapot right before Christmas.  It wasn't as nice as hers, but it did kind of take away from her surprise.  She should know her teapot has long outlived the other one and has become lots of fun to paint.  The flowers are from Trader Joe's and the cream pitcher was from Avon long ago.

The copper teapot had been hidden away in a cupboard until I stumbled upon it the other day.  I really enjoy painting copper so was delighted to find it.  My Mother gave it to me for Christmas a number of years ago and it had kind of sunk into oblivion since I drink coffee instead of tea and of course the microwave is the best way to heat the water in a hurry.

I have been side-tracked recently doing some mixed media acrylic work and it felt so good to get back to my oils.  I've been striving for a looser look in my painting and am hopeful that I am off in the right direction--finally!
