In order to loosen up before painting on my larger canvases, I sometimes paint on antique and vintage book covers left over from wreath projects (see my Simple Joys Paperie shop: http://simplejoyspaperie.etsy.com). These are quick and simplistic paintings, a bit painterly or impressionistic in style.

This book cover is 5 3/8" x 8-1/4".
Subject: just a pear.
Colors are yellow, orange, green, teal, aqua, and red.
These colors would work well in a cottage, whimsical, eclectic decor.
It is signed and dated on the back.
To display, lean against old books on a shelf, use with a small easel, or mat and frame.
Medium: Acrylic paint on cloth book cover.

Colors may vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
