Zhostovo made simple

This wooden box has been refurbished with Zhostovo design which is a Russian Folk Art design. Because of the shape of the wood item, I thought it would be more appropriate to have a classic design on it. Anyway I was inspired to paint this box after teaching a student this Russian Folk Art technique. A good exercise for me after so long not doing anything with this regard. It took me three days to complete it although I had improvised to make it more simpler.
