The Blue Hobnail Series
For year upon year there sat a set of Blue Hobnail China in my Mother's cupboard. She despised it, thought it to old fashioned I think, I on the other hand fell in love at first sight. Those little hobnail refract the light in every shade of blue imaginable. And like most Mother/Daughter relationships she was wrong! lol I think it is quite modern looking and the addition of sun-ripened tomatoes fresh from the garden make it pop. The pears offer a somewhat softer focus and settle in the sea of glass nicely. Here is to good taste and warm memories.
Both pieces of art:
media: color pencils on 96 lb Bristol
