My take on Orange

Last week the kids had their spring break.  Amal had a friend over and we all went to Cafe Ceramique, which is the local painting pottery joint.  I thought to myself, 'what am I gonna do??' I actually did not want to work on anything and wanted to attend the three kids but my little boy wanted me to partake so I did.  I made myself an orange bowl for my thread clippings and odd little bits of fabrics.  I kept missing the trash can below and there were threads everywhere and my vacuum doesn't like snippets or threads!!  So...  I used an orange with turquoise squares and trimmed in pink puffy paint.  I am thrilled with it!
My attempt at using all the colors the shop had to offer and much to the horror of the little guy running it that day.  I used puffy paint for my haphazard threads.  Love it!
And, what seems to be more snippets than threads here!!  Hmmm..  They are at the bottom!

Thank you Mirage. Now I have my cup that holds my tools and this bowl.

Colette, no this is not my first attempt. Thank you though! I have been pottery painting since I was a kid on occasional visits to my uncle in Houston. Then, every time the kids and I go home to the States, we go to a pottery place in Cleveland, where my sister is and then in St. Louis, where my heart is and my best friend and where I grew up. I have done a couple here now too. If you look further back into my posts, you will see my coffee cup that I use for my tools. I even take it to classes with me! Thanks for stopping by!
