Thyme to paint RED, WHITE and BLUE!

DO NOT PIN MY PHOTOS TO PINTEREST
I love painting
AMERICANA
I cut some large pineapples
out of rough sawn lumber

this measures about 28" tall
I first painted the pineapple
BLACK
for a
PRIM
 look
I taped the stripes off using painters tape
I painted the stripes using
DELTA  BARN RED and NIGHTFALL BLUE
I painted on the stars
using
DELTA LIGHT IVORY
I then antiqued using
Olde Century Gel Stain
in
WALNUT
I used a wood burning tool for the lines in the pineapple


This is a nice summer thyme or even year round decorative piece


Hugs,
Lynn

  7. I really like that piece, wonderful mix of americana with a favorite shape. I am going through my old create magazines, lots of great painting in them. Sometimes I get in the mood to try something, years later.
