Magnolia Cheesebox

I had a a great day painting magnolias on a cheesebox.  We have several Arts/Crafts shows planned for the spring and have decided to include some unique items in the booth in addition to paintings on canvas.  The box is stained with a light brown for a nice background and the edge of the lid is painted with a dark green to add a border effect for the lid.  The scene was painted with acrylics.

A handpainted cheesebox is probably not something most collectors would want, but handpainted unique items are sought out by those looking for great decor.  The cheesebox is functional to hold keepsakes as well as having pretty magnolias to enjoy.

Thanks for visiting the blog.

Let us pray before we paint,
