Dandelions in Seagrove Pottery Cup

8" x 10"
oil on wood

I wanted to do a daily painting today and try out some new brushes. These dandelions grow everywhere and are so pretty - they close up at night then reopen in the morning. 

This cup is from a little town in NC called Seagrove that is know for their pottery. There are studios everywhere and they even give you a map to visit all of them. A lot of the pieces are wheel thrown and perfect. I found this cup at one of the studios and because it was hand made and imperfect, it really stuck out. I think I paid, maybe $5 and and because of it's imperfectness, it was perfect for me.
