I like the delicate spoon against the battered wood. Very nice!


Thank you SO much, Virginia! Normally I paint silver spoons on solid backgrounds but I just loved the contrast of textures with this dinged wooden box. It adds not only more interest, but enhances the dimensional qualities as well. Thanks so much for your lovely comments! Jeanne
