4 Vintage Teacups - oil painting

Another of my teacup paintings. I realy struggled with the background. First it was a bright red, then I changed it to a yellowy, orangey colour. In the end I scraped of all the paint and went with a rather old looking wallpaper. I am happy now : )

Vintage teacup paintings

4 New paintings. I have boxes and boxes full of paper that I use for my paper doll collages and vintage blocks. These teacups were the perfect subject matter to use all my bits of scrap paper. I cut out the cups, pasted them on canvas and then painted over them with oils. I love the bright colours, they make me smile.

Vintage Rose Collage Paintings

I had some old stamp and postcard magazines for some years and was looking for some project to use these images. This was the perfect opportunity, an exhibition with the title "wonderfull word". I used old postcards and stamps as a collage background and then painted the roses in oil, using glazed to give it an antique feel.
