Postcard Painting #4: Bedside

I have had a rotten cold (flu?) for three days.
Today I was well enough to get out of bed most of the day, and to paint this.
Have you taken Nyquil?
It is really horrible--left me feeling poisoned, but I took it because coughing was ripping up my throat and lungs, and it does stop that.

Those round objects are clementines, not donuts.

Postcard Painting #1: Cold Day, My Teapot

Last night, the windchill fell to -25ºF here in Minneapolis. I stayed in and painted a postcard-size watercolor of my teapot.

Today it has warmed up to -9º.
I'd love to have a little pile of postcards of everyday objects. I was inspired by Maureen who finished 100 paintings in 2012.
