|Teapot & Trivet, oil on canvas|
This is an illusion painting - trompe l'oeil - a trick of the eye. The biggest challenge was to capture a graphite drawing in the oil painting. This deep cobalt blue teapot is one of my favorites and the trivet I found while vacationing in Colorado. This was painted at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art. You can see the academy's wonderful north light windows on the right side of the teapot. If you look really closely, I'm in there too! This painting is available for purchase through my art gallery in New Orleans.
