I borrowed this black iron teapot from my brother. He uses this teapot in the winters to heat tea on his cast iron stove. That little stove does a great job heating up his three season room and also makes a great cup of tea. Thanks Gary for letting me borrow the teapot.
This is a portrait of my dog, Tuck. Tuck gives me this stare when he is waiting for me to finish cleaning up my paint area. He knows soon it will be his time to get my attention and with luck a walk will soon follow. Unfortunately it has been very cold this November so playing fetch in the house will be the order of the day.
I painted this for DPW weekly challenge which was to paint something copper. I was lucky enough to have a brother who had a small copper cup that my dad used to put nail files and toe nail clippers in. It was very old and kind of dull. To make it sparkle a little more I added the Christmas bulbs and bow and enhance the color reflections I saw in the cup. Copper was quite a challenge. I will have to try to fine more copper items to paint that are a bit more reflective.
