Project Description

Looking for a fun challenge I decided to paint these objects foraged from my basement.  I had not painted a simple corrugated box before and while rummaging through stored away items I came across this pretty tattered box and thought it would be perfect.  The other items in this still life just fell into place as did the title.  Children love to play with the simplest of objects, a paper bag, a box, a kitchen pot, a ball of string.  We think we have to buy them the latest and greatest, but in fact, the best toys really aren’t toys at all.
