oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches
not for sale
Back in the days when I sewed, thread, buttons, elastic and the like were called "notions." I guess they still are. Our daughter made this pin cushion while learning to sew. It has seen better days, but I still love it. The painting was quite a challenge. I almost wiped it off several times, but I'm glad I didn't. The details on the tape measure were painted with a Silver Bristlon Flat #4. I love these brushes! The edge is so cleanly formed I was able to "stamp" the lines and hint at the numbers with the corner of the same brush.
