Vintage Watering Can

Oil on linen canvas

I discovered this lovely watering can in a vintage store in Whidbey Island and fell in love with it.  I used it in my second set-up while in a workshop with Jeff Legg, and it has since found a place in my home, waiting to be the subject of another painting one of these days soon.

Whidbey Island Teapot

Oil on linen 

I borrowed this teapot from the lovely bed and breakfast where I stayed in Whidbey, WA, so I could use it in a set-up for a painting I did there in Jeff Legg's workshop last September. He's a great teacher and the class was wonderful. It's taken me this long to post because I wanted to "tweak" a few things -- and it didn't make it to the top of my priority list until recently. I can still see things that need a bit more tweaking (I'm a tweaking fool!) -- but it's going such as it is or it may be another few months before I get around to it!

Tin Roof & More

Oil on linen

​Couldn't do just one of these.  After all, I've collected all these wine bottles and needed to put them to good use.  This has been a fun exercise.
