Everyday objets (our new little series of quick sketch-paintings of the miscellaneous thises-and-thats of life): Blue enamel coffee pot. (I told you coffee might figure prominently in this series.) It's an exceptionally lovely color blue. At this point in its career, it mainly just looks pretty (we use Chemex for our daily coffee consumption), but it does an exceptionally good job of it. (On a technical note, painting shiny smooth straight stuff is kind of hard. I'd gotten good at fur. Coffee pots don't have much fur—or at least they shouldn't. This new series will require working up some new painterly chops.)
