Simply salt and pepper shakers


I had these salt and pepper shakers made 30 years ago when I left home and had my first little home. I had a wonderful potter who made me a number of lovely blue things for my flat. I still have the vase and fruit bowl and milk jug. They all have very happy memories as they remind me of many afternoon tea parties and dinners.
I was pleased the challenge was so simple for me as I was needing a nice simple inspiration to get me back doing a bit more artwork. I am behind in the challenges but will catch up.
I still make my emailing and other activities a higher priority than my artwork. I need to get a bit more balance.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

These are wonderful salt and pepper shakers, Susan. Nice to hear from you again - I know what you mean, sometimes the blogging and keeping up takes a lot of time away from the art.

You did a lovely job. The design of your shakers is simple but for me drawing symetrical objects is not simple.

Good to see you back drawing Susan, I'm definately one of those people who has a fair bit of trouble with symetry but your salt and pepper shakers look cute oh and symetrical.

love,

These are quite intriguing, isn't it funny how the simplest things are the hardest - you captured them quite well.
