Bergdorf's Bleu et Blanc

31 Mars 2007, watercolor, 9" x 11"
 
Just about 2 months ago C. had me over for Sunday petit dejeuner.
Her new grandson, Tado, had been babtised the day before
and she asked me to paint a watercolor...
It's tradional to give guests at the babtism a little momento -
This pale blue box of draggee / almond candies was the gift.
I tried several different setups using C.'s blue and white china.
In the end they looked too complicated, even with yellow bird...
While combing through some pictures yesterday I found these Bergdorf Xmas windows from 2005.Full of blue and white china...And manikins having a tea party..I couldn't resist...showing you even if it is May.

  2. First peak at your painting, and I went "Oh, my goodness, Carol's done it again!". Take my breath away, that is. White and blue really becomes you. :-)

  9. I often sneak in on your "breakfasts". They are really lovely. Give me the lust to paint. So now I will let the laundry stand there, unfolded, and act on the spur of the moment...

    Ooooh--it's Grandma's "Blue Willow" pattern--a set my grandmother gave me, with a matching tablecloth...always makes me think of her when I see blue/white. And always love that combination. Nice job!

    Tado will never be blue, and certainly his cup will runneth over.
    Perfect Carol!
