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!

Wow that is lovely, was it your first attempt, if so I am really impressed.

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!
