Tea and Roses

Well, I just had fun with this one. The teapot is an old German antique that I've had for awhile, and hadn't gotten around to painting yet. The delicate touches of gold leaf on it's edges were fun to paint where they caught the light. The roses were big and beautiful, and I love that big splash of cadmium red - they really were that color!
This is a small painting, but I think it has impact.
Tomorrow, I'll be posting the companion piece to this one. (those roses were so pretty, I had to paint them again!)
