Copper Kettle

"Copper Kettle"
12" x 16"

 I set up the still life using a copper tea kettle and the little tea cup my mother in law gave me many years ago.  I grew the dahlias myself. In life, they were very pink, but they didn't work so well with the copper of the pot, so I altered them. Hey, it's my still life and I can do anything I want with it!
I entered it in the Dutchess County Fair fine arts competition and it won a blue ribbon in the still life category AND best in show for fine arts!
