Tie-Dyed Teapot


This is my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks challenge.  Since beginning my daily painting journey, I've learned a lot about myself.  One, my taste in dishware is too fussy.  And two, my taste in fabric is too plain.  I strugged to find a simple, white object and a brightly patterned cloth.  In the end, the teapot was a $3 find at a local thrift shop, and the fabric is one of Rodeo's bandanas.  You know what they say about necessity?  It's true!

Wow, Darla you're on a roll . . . Very nice! Too bad we don't live closer. I have a collection of white teapots and pitchers, but all my fabrics are much too boring for this challenge. I like the idea of using the bandana.

Thanks, Linda! I wish we lived closer, too. Wouldn't that be fun! I hope you're having a great week. :)

I like how that reflection fades out - (I like the highlights too!)
