EDM#290: Draw a teapot
I used ArtRage on my iPad again for this one. I'm fascinated by teapots and love collecting them, even though half the time I just pull hot water from our gizmo with the water bottle on top that dispenses super hot or super cold water. Maybe one day, I'll draw that. Of course, it's not nearly as pretty as most teapots are.
This teapot also reminds me of my wonderful grandmother, who would have been 102 today. I can't drink a cup of tea without thinking of her. She always drank plain ol' Lipton black tea from the supermarket. I'm not sure whether she'd be delighted or appalled by all the flavored variations I drink today.
She always reminded me that I was her first grandchild, her god daughter, her namesake and her favorite. The first three always made me feel extra special. The last-- being her favorite-- was something she told all of her grandchildren... and we knew it. But it didn't make any of us feel any less special. She passed away just before Christmas several years ago. She's always on my mind, more so at this time of year.
Linking to Sunday Sketches and EDM #290.
