Cute Bag

Surprise Inside, 5 x 7 " oil on linen panel, Fay Terry

Available at Sunset River Gallery
Calabash, NC

I usually don't save bags but I was charmed with the way my gifts to bring home were given such attractive and careful packaging. That is certainly one nice thing about shopping in Paris, where each purchase is uniquely and protectively wrapped. It's especially fun to buy art supplies,  stationery, and books, which look quite impressive by the time they have been prepared to go out the door sealed with the proprietor's special touch.

We may be getting some snow later this week, but right now it is warm and sunny!


  1. Fay, I felt like I could pick up that bag right off the paper! Very realistic! Very well done!

  2. That is such a cute bag. No wonder you painted it. Love the red.

  3. Wow, that is one impressive perspective drawing/painting. You also nailed the colors and values. That bag looks like I could pick it up. Well done Fay and lovely.

  4. Yes I agree I think it's brilliant - values, colors- everything!

  5. What a great painting. You may have inspired me to paint a "Fresh Produce" bag.
