Kathleen adores these colors.  I thought it only right to paint her tea kettle using her favorite colors.  After all, what are birthdays for?

Kathleen's Tea Kettle

It’s the cantaloupe and the honeydew colors that she loves, colors of the sixties.  I added the red for my own pleasure.  I learned how powerful and beautiful red can be when Kathleen decorated her room in Germany with reds and purples.  This painting is a tribute to a friendship that has lasted fifty-nine years and is still growing stronger.  The pleasure of color is wonderful to share with one another.

Painting: drawn first with fountain pen filled with black ink, followed by watercolor in a somewhat Complementary Triad Color Scheme of red, green and orange.
