ANTIQUE FRENCH TEAPOT, 16X16, OIL


I am sort of an Etsy fanatic and I found this teapot listed on a site http://www.dandeliondecor.etsy.com/.  I contacted the owner of the site, a very nice French woman, and she gave me permission to use her photograph for this painting.  She still has the teapot, so if anyone wants to buy it, along with my painting, it can happen!  Wouldn't that be fun?

Today is my granddaughter, Courtney's birthday.  She is sweet 16 today.  Remember when we used to say "sweet 16 and never been kissed"?  Hmmm, I will need to talk to her about that.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COURTNEY!

Oh my goodness, this is so good! You've completely captured the delicacy of the China. And how on Earth did you ace that iridescence? Bravo!

The curvy lines work so well with the straight ones in the background. Nice, soft colors.
