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.
