Today’s teapot is one that I recently painted at Market 124. I absolutely love to go there and spend some time creating. I absolutely love to visit this store because there is always something new and fun. I have written a couple of posts about them so you know that I love to stop by anytime I am down town in Mason City.
This time I took JeniEats and DonnaHup.com along. Well—let me rephrase that. I took Jeni and Donna along but you know them by their blogs.
It was Donna’s birthday and I wanted to treat her to painting something and while I was there I had to do something to keep my own hands busy so I picked a teapot. Big surprise, right? This is what I came up with.
I picked some fun blues and went to work. I was pretty happy with the way it turned out once it was fired but wish I had made the yellow dots on the flowers a bit darker. Next time….
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of toast and tea

So pretty! Blue is my favorite. Sounds like a fun time.
Thanks, Dianna! I had a lot of fun this day making it.
2 blues, delightful contrast
I thank you, Carl. I had fun making this one.
You are now officially a teapot artist. I am just surprised that you didn’t choose red. You know, every time I saw a teapot in Clear Lake, I thought of you. See how your teapot craziness has worked into my mind.
I did paint a red one there a few years back—it is the larger one and I did polka dots on it. This one needed a bit heavier hand on the yellow flowers but next time I will know how to do that . 🙂
What a great job of painting the teapot. Looks so cheerful – just like you!!
Ah, thanks. I had fun doing this one!
He’s very cute! And, the memories are even better!!
I agree. It was a lot of fun doing this with them and the teapot turned out pretty well.
Oh I Love this one!!! I think I always definitely lean towards the blue ones. I may have to redo my kitchen. ha
I am getting more enamored with the color blue these days. Blue and yellow. Those are two that go together great, don’t you think?
Love your teapots! http://www.segmation.com

It looks great!

I think you did a beautiful job with your teapot.
