"The Carnival Glass Egg Cup"
8" x 8" oil on canvas
I found this carnival glass egg cup on Ebay about 3 years ago and this is my first attempt to paint it. The copper kettle just seemed to fit and of course I felt the eggs needed to be there as well. The flowers in the vase in the reference photo I took were gerbera daisies but these peonies worked better for the completed painting.
Word of advice to artists : Don't let your furry pet position itself between the fan and you and the easel !
;-) My mostly white calico cat did just that without my realizing it while I was painting and "here a hair, there a hair" (fur, I mean) appeared on my painting at random times. Lesson learned. Oh, I did remove the fur from the painting
Did I dare move the cat.....of course not! The fan went off instead.
