Peacock painting

I have had this very pretty red waste basket and I had covered in wall paper many years ago.  I almost threw it out and then I thought about removing the wall paper and painting it white.  I did it but it was too plain. Something missing.  So I bought an acrylic paint and brush kit.  I have always liked peacocks so this is my painted waste basket for my craft sewing room.

 I like the way it turned out for my first painting.  I may try painting on canvas since I have all these tubes of acrylic paints and brushes.
