Pine Cone Art

We collected some pine cones on our walk in the park- I had some turquoise paint left over from a pervious project so we decided to paint them-




I ended up painting the outside of the can we used for our project and it now sits on my desk as my pencil holder. 
My intention is to hang the pine cones up but for now they are being played with while not resting in a bowl.
The monkeys had fun doing this quick project- in hind sight I should have used smaller brushes- it would have made the project last longer and we could have gotten into the groves better. 

Questions to consider while creating:
What combination of colors would you use to make this color?
What materials (medium) are we using to create?
Could this be considered a sculpture? (yes- it is three dimensional art)

I love what you did to the pine cones - such a cheery, festive colour! It was an unexpected week away from the internet for me, and so lovely to return to see this! Hope you had a terrific weekend and that it's a good week ahead, Ren!

I really like this idea. I like collecting pinecones when I'm up in northern Arizona visiting my parents. I'm thinking a bowl filled with painted pinecones would be great.

These are so bright and modern! I love that they aren't a "traditional" Christmas color...far more interesting.
