A Painted Paintbrush

Donna Downey recently wrote to me and asked if I'd contribute an altered paintbrush to hang in the bathroom of her new studio/classroom space.

I was happy to oblige.  Take a peek:

Donna asked us each to attach a business card to the handle.  So here's my brush with the card:

Painting a paintbrush isn't something I would have done without the prompting, but I am so glad that I did!  This was a wonderful artistic challenge and I love the result.  I was a little sad to send it off, but thrilled that it will be seen by lots of folks at Donna's studio -- doesn't everyone have to go to the bathroom at some point?  It's a good reminder to me to paint more unusual objects.  I think I have this ephiphany every single time I paint something unusual.  Perhaps I simply haven't learned my lesson yet!

You can read about the altered paintbrushes on Donna's blog here.

Thanks for stopping by!
