This lovely big and heavy copper and brass kettle has boiled many litres of water in it's time, I like it's blackened base, makes me wonder whether it ever hung over an open fire and how old it is, I wish it could tell me. It makes a wonderful subject for a still life too. I'm sure I will paint a few more of it before I pass it on.

My old copper jug is in the centre of things again, along with two lustre jugs, both cracked but still useful in a still life set up. I have a whole list of things I want to paint along with some landscapes for a change.
Tomorrow I'm off to do a painting demo down in Dungarvan Arts Centre, it will be a small simple one, which I have painted the rough sketch of onto my board, so it shouldn't be too difficult.
