GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE!


This bowl makes me so happy...I found it in a Thrift store and snatched it right up. The spoon is part of a set of Bakelite handled spoons from probably the 1930s. The fact is yellow is an incredibly difficult color for me to work with and so I welcomed the challenge.

I love thrift store finds! You did a nice job with these yellows. I like how it shows up also in the shadows and reflections.

You did a very good job with the yellows. Nice variety. Also like your finds. Love both the bowl and spoon

LindaHunt said...

Thanks, Becky Joy! Not sure why yellow is such a tricky color for me to work with.

These two objects will bring life into a room whether winter or summer. Yes, a happy, happy painting!

I agree that yellow can be hard to paint but you did a great job. Love the spoon too.

Marie, thank you for your comment...even though yellow is such a difficult color for me to paint it does make for a happy painting!

Kelley, thanks...why on earth is yellow such a tricky color to paint? At least it is for me.

Mary thanks for stopping by. I love anything Bakelite...when you love something it makes it easier to paint. This set of silverware was a gift several years ago and I haven't seen many full sets.

Oh Bakelite, now I'm aging myself for knowing what it is right, lol... I think you handled the yellows great Linda. I like your choice of turquoised shadows as well.
