"Black Cat Teapot With Lemons"
oil on archivally-prepared canvas panel -- 11x14"
The Canton, Michigan Village Theater invited me to come and do a painting demonstration 2 weeks ago. This was painted in the theater lobby. I chose this teapot because it's so much fun to paint. The high-gloss glaze reflects all the surrounding colors like a mirror. I grabbed an antique tablecloth from the 50's and a couple lemons. This teapot I originally bought back in 1978, so I've gotten quite a few good pots of tea (and paintings) from it.
As an experiment, I'm also listing this on an eBay auction. Here is the link:
