:: Silver teapot ::

Je te promets le sel au baiser de ma bouche
Je te promets le miel à ma main qui te touche
Je te promets le ciel au dessus de ta couche
Des fleurs et des dentelles pour que tes nuits soient douces
— Johnny Halliday

In France the musical idol Johnny Halliday, the French Elvis, has just vanished and his words were tender and the country is in mourning.

I have sent my marks to the students so now I can start enjoying my time off. What better way than to draw one of my Mum’s beautiful silver teapots? It has a grungy look as I drew this last night while watching TV and my husband kept saying to me: “Look Jane, you’re going to miss out on what is happening…” and lo and behold, I have no clue as to what the TV show was about — LOL -) He was right, but I was concentrating on the beautiful reflected lights of the teapot!

    Dear Jane: Thank you so much for painting this truly beautiful teapot. I imagine that it was most difficult to do – it is so perfect and it means so very much to me. MOM >

  2. Darn, forgot to ask that caused me to write in the first place. How do you like the MG paints. Do they really stay softer in a pan and, if so, could that become a problem on a hot summer day?

      The MG paints are very moist and in the summer months or in warmer climes style Costa Rica, they bleed out of the paintbox — I do use some MG, especially for my yellow, as I find that it has the truest yellow (not too much on the green side nor on the orange side).

  3. Are we supposed to watch TV when it’s on? I thought it was just background noise while drawing.
