Pewter Pot

This is from last week's art class, so I figured I'd better get it uploaded before tomorrow! Michelle asked if I really liked fruit better than flowers? Well I like flowers in and of themselves, but I much prefer to *paint* fruit - they are just more fun, sort of senuous and rounded.

But in this case we had a pewter tankard filled with gorgeous hydrangeas - but I just loved the tankard and could not fit both the pot and the flowers in without having to work too small - so I chose the pot and lopped off the flowers at the top!

The flowers were pretty though, and beautifully backlit. But the little bit I did was enough for me. My friend Lynne from Canada liked this picture well enough to want to *buy* it though! Now I just have to get it packaged to ship.
