Sink/Stove Lid Re-vamp

Originally I painted my sink/stove lid yellow~ along with the rest of my interior. Bad choice! This is the spot where we mix drinks, set out food to munch on, etc. Its the prime place for spills but also a center piece when we have guests in the bus. I've been toying around painting different things on it, but last weekend in Charleston a fellow Moonie's hand painted table gave me inspiration.
I've been wanting to do an entire scene the way I have been doing my collages, and this was the perfect chance for me to test my color matching skills.
I decided to "paint" a portrait of my happy place

Closeup of the mountains~

Ask you can see, it isn't quite finished. It still needs to be trimmed and glued down, and resin coated. But I just couldn't resist posting about it in the meantime. I will post photos of it finished & installed once I get around to it.


  1. Oh! Laura! I love it! And I bet Lenny does, too! You passed color matching skills with flying colors!

    I see some money making possibilities..buy tray tables from the thrift stores and paint gorgeous scenes!

  2. Wow - that is fantastic!! That is a great idea, and the artwork is beautiful. Almost too nice to be putting plates over it! :)

  3. Thank you Steve & Cyndi~ that is a great idea about the trays, I actually bought a great one for $2 and been wondering what to do with it! Duh!~ :)
    A local store is opening and asked me to have my art there~ as well as the cassette tape wallets & record bowls I make. Now I have a place to sell my art :)
