Tea with Cranberries, Pastel, 11 1/2" x 17", painted on Wallis sanded paper

I have a small collection of enamel teapots from the 50's and 60's.  I like the colors and shapes, they make nice subjects in still life.  This teapot is a fire engine red, and I thought that by combining it with greens and golds it would give a feeling of Christmas.  I used this painting one year as the image on my Christmas card.  Much to my surprise, it also won an award that year in a local art show.
