Red day II / Canvas

Here is my "RED" for the day...this is a set-up that I did for a watercolor painting.
I really like how this turned out. It was an old canvas that needed a make over. I smoothed texture medium on the edges. Soft Pinks, Robins Egg blue. I put a board behind the canvas to hold the wire that is holding on the little can. I looked and looked on the computer for just the right font, this is the one I decided to paint . This is an 8 X 10 canvas. This is going on Ebay
The winner of my chocolate charm is Becky.

The red looks so yummy :) Why does red remind me of summer? Must be the fruit and 4th of July!
