The Old Cupboard

15 cm x 15 cm / 5,9" x 5,9"

This old cupboard from the forties or so has a plain white coat of paint which has become a bit yellowish over the years. My husband always wants me to paint something on it, like a "trompe l'oeil" for example, but I like the plainness with the patina, which I think emphasize it's nice proportions. Anyway, although the painting looks quite simple, it was a challenge and I liked doing it.
Oh, and by the way, on top are a few of our collection of tins, I told you about a little while ago.
