What’s in the Christmas Post? . . . it’s colourful, fun
and full of paintings
Over 10 years ago I bought two ceramic cups and saucers in Florence at a shop called Pasquinucci. Italian names often have a meaning so I looked it up and it means ‘A very spiritual person who often relies on intuition for decision making‘ well there you are! While I studied at Angel and lived in Italy I bought ‘things for home’ – who doesn’t love Italian design?

About 5 years later, when I was home again, I looked up the name printed on the base of a cups and discovered they are German after all! I bought some more.

Have I set the scene for you?

2nd Brown Coffee Pot & Poppies
I find the cups very beautiful in their simplicity and fine, vibrant glaze.
I make a graphite pencil drawing before I begin to think about how it all fits together. You may see a change I made?
Lime Cup with Limes and Hellebores
To paint all the cups. And that is what I’m sharing here. I wish I had been more disciplined and painted them one after another and all the same size. But I haven’t. Secretly I wish I could see them altogether. But I can’t. But here I can. This is how far I have got. I have more to go.
