Coffee Pot

Oil on Canvas Sheet  7.5 x 10 ins (19 x 25 cm)

This coffee pot, bought at a garage sale -- known picturesquely in France as a 'Vide Grenier' or attic-emptying -- expressly to by used as a model, proved a challenge, which may be obvious.  I have not touched a paint brush or pallet knife for several months.
This was painted for Carol Marine's DPW challenge .
