Woman On A Painted Table

painting of a woman trapped in a table topI had this metal table at the cabin and always meant to paint cherries on the dangling drops but went a different way after I put my purse on top.

I wanted her to have an "oh no" look when items were placed on the surface. I painted the illustration in a cartoon style with very bright colors in order to keep the painting from becoming sinister. The funny thing is, after I painted her, no one uses the table any more.

To ensure good paint adhesion I base coated the top with Gesso.
