doing some painting

i was in the mood to do some more painting ala traci baustista and you know how i like to use non traditional things for my "canvas". so i pulled this old doll storage box out of my closet and set out to giving it a brand new look. the box is a good size; measuring 18x13. but i like working large. when i finished i covered it in several layers on polyurethane, which really made some of the underlayers and dimensional doodling really pop out. if you are at Art Opera next week, you can see it in person. i collaged the sides, back and bottom with tissue paper.

(sorry about the big fat black cat who wouldn't move out of the way when i was taking this picture!)
