Two Doves Trinket Box

If you haven't been reading along, this box is part of a series I made in the winter of 2011 (I call it my "paint everything in sight" period after acquiring a studio with running water and a big work table). The rest of the series is HERE. I am just starting to list them for sale now, in 2012.

Of all of the painted boxes (so far), this is probably my least favorite (I like the butterfly boxes the most). I did take great pains to paint stars on the inside of the box for this one. 

Last night when I was busy painting an ACEO (a mini original painting that has to be 2.5" x 3.5"), I realized that the top of this box was not much bigger (2.5" x 4.5"). Hmmmm, so that's why I was always using my liner brushes!

Back to painting!


  1. I like it! This piece is peaceful and soothing ... relaxing just to look at and enjoy. VERY nice!

  2. Thank you! It's definitely a departure from the other ones.
