In the mornings (and sometimes evenings), in order to loosen up before painting on my canvases, I have begun painting 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 simple paintings, a bit painterly or impressionistic in style. I plan on doing at least one a day until the end of September, or longer. They may be similar in style, but I'll try to use different colors each morning and the sizes will depend upon the covers I have in my stash.

This book cover is 4 3/4" x 7 1/4".
Subject: 3 cherries.
Medium: Acrylic paint on old cloth book cover, in this instance an antique book cover.
Colors are shades of red, green, aqua, black, and white.
These colors would work well in an eclectic, rustic, country, farmhouse 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.
