Roll Out The Barrel Part 5

I am the happiest when I am painting. All of my troubles disappear and I am lost in the joy of creating.

I am very close to having my barrel completed!

I painted a grape vine mandala on the top of my barrel and touched up the black rings with some black paint.

All I need to do is seal it and deliver it!

My intention was to stay true to the origin of the barrel and keep it in as much of it's original state as possible. I used grape vines around the top ring and a grape vine mandala on the top. The center ring depicts landscape scenes from around the local area including the Benton County Museum, Alsea Falls, Marys Peak, vineyards and Philomath's welcome sign.

I am very pleased with the way it turned out :)
