Thrift Shop Silver Teapot

This was so much fun to draw with all the little details and decoration. I found it at a thrift shop when I was taking a long walk in El Cerrito and stopped in to browse.  I expect to have more fun drawing and painting it again. It’s sitting on my drawing table enticing me to come back and draw.

Thank you Ingrid! I visited your blog and found it interesting to read when Google translated it from German for me. I wonder how well they made the translation. It was rather poetic. Jana

Jana, Google behaves so strangely, sometimes, that I now call it GIGGLE.COM. It does a beautiful job on Ingrid’s blog. As you say, so poetic, and I enjoyed her work so much, tonight. Once I even read a Chinese blog that translated perfectly, but it goes nuts on the two Swedish blogs that I visit daily. Big puzzle.

When I read Jana’s remark, I had to look you up, too, Ingrid. I love the drawing of Icarus and the clever way you show his wings starting to melt.

Thanks Raena, I hope you can dig it up and have some sketching fun too. I see you’re still not posting too often right now, but always look forward to seeing your work when you do post. Jana

Jana, I absolutely love this little watercolour painting. The colours are wonderful and so is the rendering of this teapot – beautiful in its simplicity!
Warm greetings again, Petra

Thanks Laura, I was actually thinking about your lines when I drew this–trying to channel a little Laurelines into mine! It’s so nice to hear from you. I know your time was very short and committed when you were in SF recently but if you do come out here again and have any extra time, I would love the chance to meet you and show you around my little part of the world (Berkeley…or Berzerkely as it’s commonly known…) Jana

Thanks Dee, I miss seeing your wonderful watercolor sketches on your blog, though I do see what you’re up to on Facebook from time to time. Do you have any plans to go back to blogging your sketches and art (I’m sure you’re still making them, just not blogging)? I still have a link to you on my blogroll in the hopes you’ll come back! Thanks for visiting! Jana
