Red, White, and Rust

Watercolor 5" X 7"

I am not sure why I am so intrigued
with rust but I am. On a girl-friends weekend to
San Angelo, we browsed the antiques shops.
In the basement of one shop, I spotted this neglected
and out of place red, white, and rusted enamelware coffee pot.
It wasn’t upstairs in a prime location.
It wasn’t displayed with the expensive china and crystal.
But, I could tell by the water lines on the inside
that this little pot had been well used and probably
had a story to tell if anyone would listen.
Not pretty, not elegant, not expensive just a
little coffee pot that had seen better days.
