New Kettle

Tea Time, 6 x 6" oil on archival panel, ©2013, Fay Terry

available at Visual Art Exchange, Raleigh



I have a new kettle for my newly renovated kitchen and I bought it because the color is called "Ocean".
It does go well with the new paint color on the walls, which is called "Sea Salt".  Do you sense a pattern here?  You are right if you think that I cannot resist anything which has to do with the beach.  I do tend to choose paint based on the name of the color once I have it narrowed down to three or four options.
I did not get the color just right in this painting, it actually has a little more blue in it. I am enjoying my new cooking space so much, especially after almost a month of eating out every night.
This is my second painting for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.  So far so good.
