Acrylic Downloadable Painting Pattern - Contemporary Folk Art - Red Geraniums by Sue Pruett MDA
Artist Sue Pruett has chosen a traditional metal coal bucket as the surface for this floral painting. As with most folk art, the surface for the painted decoration serves a useful purpose. Decorative painters through out history have selected everyday objects and utencils to decorate the home. This tradition goes back to Early American painting. Folk Art styles such as Tole painting (painting on tin surfaces), Chippendale,and other simple decorative designs became popular in the 1800's. In the 1960's these decorative painting styles resurfaced and gained in popularity.
Sue designs a more contemporary floral motif to fit with today's decorating trends and colors.
