Les bleus et les roses
This spoon I recently painted was the motto for my creative juices to fire up and send me on a photoshoot craze with kitchen utilities and said spoon. The first one was this pairing of blues and pinks, old and new, rustic and classic.
That little turquoise mug is a not so recent acquisition, but looks rather antique, with it's tiny foot and the curved handle. It also looks so classic and elegant, making a contrast with the more strudy, more rustic vintage plates that were my grandparents'. But despite the contrast, their colours go together quite well, turning this vignette into something delicate, and feminine.
The wooden spoon is something I had been wanting to do for some time now, and I already have three more at the finishing touches phase. I went for a pale pink and a fuchsia combination, because it made me think of ice cream, and it looked sweet and fresh. Turned out really good, and now all I want to do is go out, buy some more spoons and paint tons of them, in an array of colours!!
