Blue Bonnet Bucket

I painted this little scene of blue bonnets on an oval galvanized bucket I had bought to paint a couple of years ago.  Seems like all my ideas take years to fulfill.  Anyway, I painted it with acrylics in a crafty mode on sides and ends, and put a clear gloss seal on it.  We used to do a lot of crafty painted projects a few years back when we went to the Canton First Monday Market every month.  That was 'back in the day' when I painted everything on anything that stood still long enough.  LOL Did that for several years and loved it.  This one is 15 3/4 inches long across the top,  9 3/4 inches wide across the top, and 5 3/4 inches tall.  It is listed in my etsy shop. 

We were at the Bay City, TX Market Day last Saturday and had a great time.  The weather was beautiful and we got to see some friends and push some art.  Bay City has their Market Day on the third Saturday of the month starting in March.  Thanks for stopping by.

Let us pray before we paint,

Very creative and lovely colors! I love bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush wildflowers...used to live in Texas for 13 yrs and miss seeing these flowers everywhere! Keep it up with painting!
