Purple Polka-dot Pot

Purple Polka-dot Pot  6 x 6 oil on board
I was searching for striped fabric when I ran across this
polka-dot piece that I had to have. I went
a little crazy with the stripes and dots but
enjoyed every minute of it. Since there
was a lot of action in the light areas I tried to keep all
the darks very simple.
This might sound silly but it reminds me of a heavy little
tug boat chugging up stream through a
sea of fabric.
I grew up on the water watching the tugboats work
and always thought they were amazing.


  1. This sparkles with light and beautiful color. I love the angle of the teapot.

  2. This is a lovely painting that reflects the enjoyment you felt while painting it. Now that you mention it, it does have a tugboat-ish energy to it!

  3. Hi Wendy,
    Thanks for the comment, it was really fun to paint!
