Grammy Croft's Cream Whipper, Oil 5x7

$100 & $10 Shipping & Handling via PayPal
This was a tall pottery container my husband's grandmother used to whip cream (I was astonished when I learned this as a young woman - I thought whipped cream came out of an Redi-Whip container!). My MIL has some gems like this from that generation, that I borrowed to paint for my Challenge group's theme "Grandmother's Kitchen" this month. It's updated and available for viewing HERE. Do you guys want to see some photos from our 'dress-up' gathering for that theme last night? It was fun, we had all 50's food, and we dressed like our grannies. A fun, wild night, and getting to see the paintings in person was amazing as usual.

  4. This has a wonderfully nostalgic feel to it. Great job on the ceramic. The rusty/peachy background bring to mind my Grammy's Peach Ice Cream made in a similar crock.

  7. Kelley!

    I know this is going to sound dorky but I like how you incorporated the same colors of the still life into your signature/logo at the left-hand corning of the painting.

  9. I really love the way you handled the flowers on the front; your paintings are always so fun to look at because they're so lush.
