♦ Painted Carolina Wren and Chickadee Teapots June 11 2015

 

3 years ago my little niece Corinne was born. When she was a baby she'd flap her arms like a bird and we called her our little Wren (which rhymes with Corinne). My mother is an avid tea-drinker so I painted a little Carolina Wren teapot for her. This year my second little niece, Ellie was born. Her cheeks are so fat they barely contain her big, bright-eyed smiles. Mom started calling Ellie her little Chickadee. So I painted a little Chickadee Teapot to add to my Mother's collection. Below are some detail images of the newest Chickadee Teapot.
