Blue and White Jug

Blue and White Jug
5 x 7
Oil on Hardboard

This is the first painting I did after building a new shadow box.  The cheap cardboard box just wasn't doing it anymore.  I used the instructions on Carol and David Marine's site New Beginnings.  You can see the instructions here.  It was inexpensive and EASY to make.  I am not kidding!  Less than $25.00 not counting the fabric which I had on hand.  And easy.  My three-year-old grand-daughter helped me put it together.  Seriously!  One hint:  To cut the PVC pipe I used a fine blade hack saw.  Cut like a charm.  I highly recommend making one.  Please note:  I only made the PVC frame.  I did not add the wood bottom or backboard.

Here is how it might look framed
