I painted this the second day at my mother-in-law’s house. I bought some lemons at the store, borrowed a beautiful little bowl and headed downstairs to get set up to paint. Then I saw this cute little toy on a table. I grabbed it instantly and decided that’s what I wanted to paint. I never did paint those lemons.
This little wind-up toy was fun to paint. But if you want to see some real paintings of toys, visit my friend Diane’s website. She is a master at painting old toys, among other things.
