Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

ACEOs, Teapots for NFAC

Teatime at Nibblefest! Bidding on these ACEOs starts at 99 cents on Ebay.

See more of my art at www.pennyleestewart.com

Obviously, I cannot decide what style I prefer to paint in, or what medium to use. The Red Teapot is very loose style watercolor and pen, Blue one in the middle has a thick heavy application of acrylic done in a painterly style, and flowered Blue and White teapot on the bottom is a Folk Art style done with acrylic. The dots on the doily were done with a stylus.
