Pieces of China Inspire Me to Paint

I really love the transferware (birthday present to myself). Although I admit I use that line far too often. On the subject of transferware I don't know much about it, other than I like it. Mom gave me the beautiful amber colored candlesticks, and the vintage parrot bottle opener. I found the transfer ware at The Galesburg Antique's Mall. I especially like the teapot/cup container on the left.

Here's a little better view of the parrot--I think it belonged to Grandma Eva.
Pieces or parts of this will end up being subjects in a still life.
