"English Heritage"
8x8 inches / oil on panel
It was a true pleasure to become acquainted with a member of the renowned Copeland family, who commissioned this triptych series of oil paintings from his vast collection. The title of this series is "English Heritage" named for my client's family history.  The center panel of this triptych is presented here first as it's my favorite with this beautiful covered vegetable tureen.  The color and finish on Copeland Spode is so rich which is only part of its allure, the second of course being the bucolic scenes depicted in this detailed transferware.  My specialty is painting tarnsferware so if you have always wished to have a painting of your collection or the collection of your dreams, please feel free to contact me for a quote at  Also, you may wish to peruse my recently updated website for five (5) pages of images featuring blue and white paintings along with a collection of red, white and blue, all in a chapter of the same name at
