Cigar box Art









My newest recycle, reclaim, reuse, Eco Art project in my shop. After painting on a wooden piece found at a second hand store, I was asked to find a wooden cigar box to paint on for use as a jewelry box.
After searching hi and low, I found a beautiful vintage one. I approach these projects in the same way I approach a canvas painting, this is not a technique painting or even like tole painting, it is an original painting just on a different canvas. I have many more wooden things to paint on including some more cigar boxes that I found on etsy this morning, I will be getting three of them so keep checking back to see how they turn out. I have to admit this one is going to be tough to part with.
Weather update, we are finally getting snow in Montana.
