Pitcher

I found this pitcher and fell in love!! I've longed for one just like it -- colors and all -- but have yet to make a purchase. I love the shape, the size, even the flowers -- and it would look perfect on the old-fashioned sink we have in our bisque-painted bathroom. I'll have to settle for my rendering for now.

But more, to me it also symbolizes warmth, cozyness, and a slower-paced living ... things I long for during these busy weeks ...

You did a wonderful job on this Lin! The handle and the lip looks so complicated and beautiful!

Lovely. Even the act of drawing it was probably restful, taking you to a slower-paced way of life, even if only for a few moments. :o)

That would be great beside a sink in your house, I'd bet! You must be an antique collector -- I love the recent drawings!

Beautiful bowl and pitcher. Used to have one of Mother's, but I gave it to one of the girls when we sold her household.

It strikes me how your paintings almost always have a verve and sense of joy to them, like they're dancing and happy. This one does too with it's wavy shapes and lively but subtle colors. What a delight!
