It's Folk Art Summer Thyme

   Do you remember my thrift store find basket
that I posted a few days ago?
I only paid $9.00 for it
well I finished it




close-up of watermelon slice




I painted the bands around the basket like a watermelon
with seeds




I added a grubby stained tag and old key



This was a fun piece  to paint.
I used a design 
by 
Renee Mullins
called
Folk Art Summer Time
to paint this piece

Happy Painting!
Lynn
