"Bottles and teapot" still life

Here is my new graphic work above, its again a still life, a genre that i'm most experienced in. I used Talens Van Gogh oil pastels for it. Oil pastel was once my favourite medium, but its somehow forgotten by me now. What i love about it is that it reminds a paint a lot but keeps spontaneity of drawing. It even may be applied with palette knife, or - in my case - an old plastic card, which i use sometimes for making some sharp and straight lines. 

Also, when i started this work, i had no actual idea on what to draw right now, but somehow my mind returned to some my older works, which i used as a base idea. Here are those sources of inspiration:

It'd be interesting to know how often do you use your older works for an inspiration, do you ever return to topics you already drew or painted?
