Yet More Cream Pitchers

 These are some more cream pitchers and I have six more from friends yet to paint. This  one is part of a set inherited from my husbands family.  Its been in a cabinet for 40 years.  I used part of the set it in at least one still life painting, previously.

This is one of my favorites, at least now.

 Another find at the local second-hand store and it will go back soon.

This one is part of the set of dishes I use most days.  I told my aunt many times how much I like the set and she gave them to me when she moved into a condo.

I'm in Juneau for most of a week and haven't had much chance to paint.... medical appointments, shopping and dealing with lots of snow.   On the ferry ride here on Wednesday, I planned to paint and saw the most spectacular sunset, but Lynn Canal was so rough, I was close to nausea.

Some Recent Watercolors

 I've been remiss the last couple of weeks, not doing my watercolors everyday and not even putting the dates on when I have done them.  I'm pretty sure this one was on December 30th.

I think I did these two on New Years from a photo.  I also did an oil from it which I wiped out.

This is Gus who is 13 years old and loved by Kathy and Cheryl.  I painted him in his home a few weeks ago and made him look more like a cat more recently.....he looked like a blob before.

This was the sky one morning around New Years.

Some More Cream Pitchers

These are some more cream pitchers that I've painted in the last month.   This one was borrowed from a friend, as well as the second and forth one.  

This was made by local potter, Kim Ney.

I bought this one in England many years ago at an outdoor market.  It is signed with an "NC" below the handle.

This was made by the late Liz Berry who lived in Fairbanks, Alaska.

These, I found at the local second hand store.
