Thyme to paint with Lynne Andrews

I recently joined 
the
 Cape Cod Mayflower Decorative Artists Chapter




Lynne Andrews
recently came to teach
HARE'S Trouble
to
 our group


We could use a surface of our choice for the project
I chose this wood basket.
I have it base coated with the line drawing transferred.





Everyone is hard at work on their projects!





This is my project as I was working on it.



Lynne is not only a great teacher but she is also fun to paint with!


I did not complete my project in class!



I brought it home to complete it.


The lettering 
on 
Lynne's projects
 is 
always beautiful
but
time consuming!


After the lettering was complete 
I gave it several light sprays 
of 
Krylon Workable Fixative.


The "fixative" will set your lettering
 before you varnish 
and 
prevent any smearing!


I applied several coats
 of 
Dura Clear Matte Varnish
to my piece.


This is the finished top to my basket.


The saying on the top of the basket reads:

"Where is HEAVEN? Is it not just a friendly garden plot, walled in stone and roofed with sun, where the days pass one by one, Surely God is in this place, for I have seen Him : face to face. "



This is a side view of the basket.



Here my finished basket. 
This was a fun SpRiNg Thyme project to paint!


Happy Painting !
Lynn
