Cool things from the imaginative brain of Carol Breen. Musings about muses, moose and the odd raven.

"Autumn Tea" (Teapot Series) Inspiration

My teapot series of paintings began when I saw a Vietnamese, blue and white teapot which had a horse standing on the top of its lid. That image stayed in my mind for years.

One autumn afternoon while out drawing with some friends, we stopped for tea. It was there that my imagination started creating teapots combined with what I was observing --water, trees, leaves, colours, birds and animals. Earlier in the day we had seen a moose!
