Teacup and Lemon Wedges

"Teacup and Lemon Wedges" 6 x 8 pastel on paper

I love, love, love vintage items.  So this vintage teacup was just calling out to me to be painted.  I cut up a lemon from our studio refridgerator and started this on Monday.  Worked on it yesterday, and finished up today.  This is painted from life...painting this way gives you so much insight into the colors and form in your objects. 

I also love soft edges which I employ in almost every oil or pastel that I paint. 

Wouldn't this be the perfect Mother's Day gift?  I can frame it for you if desired.
