Original Finish

…or finished original?

This little teapot has been hanging around the studio for a few weeks now since it was discovered at Windsor Place Antiques and Ephermera by my house. It’s made a fine subject matter, sitting on the Stickley sideboard, for the first painting of 2014. Each item provided a different take on reflections, from the old beveled mirror, to the polished oak, to the hammered-metal drawer pulls, to the enameled teapot with painted designs and touches of gold.

Outside there was the cold and snow, but I worked on this over three days and avoided much of it. But never fear—I got outside on Friday, after the snow stopped, and snapped lots of photos in Prospect Park and found several images that I hope will make up my next few paintings.
