My First Painted Rhubarb Leaf

Posted by doone (My Page) on

I had fun playing last night. It turned out OK. Not at all like some of the leaves I've seen painted here...that are shiny and natural looking...but...I'm still pretty proud of it!

Do you think this is worth $45?

It's wonderful! Way better than my first leaf...isn't it an amazing feeling?

I don't have any advice on what to charge. I'm just not quite there yet. I haven't even painted anything yet, except for one of my lantern tops that was in my line of vision when I was staining an arbor.


RE: My First Painted Rhubarb Leaf

Wasn't painting fun, you can't make a mistake. You will come up with colors and textures that work for you.
As to pricing leaves, look around in your area and do some self analyzing of what you have made, and give yourself credit and worth for what you have accomplished. You will also have to price with size in mind also.
What is the gray item in the middle of the leaf?

RE: My First Painted Rhubarb Leaf

Thanks! It was fun!!! There isn't anyone in my area doing this! So, I'm hoping to get a jump on everyone. Going to try to take some down to the Farmer's Market tomorrow. The gray item is a small silver glass gazing ball. I found them at Hobby Lobby..thought they might be an added bonus...
