This is Way # 2
I found this buoy in relatively good condition on the beach after a storm one day. I say relatively, because it probably went through the propeller of a passing fishing boat and was cut from the trap line. After cleaning and painting it a flat white (it was coral red and white) I painted a traditional Magdalen Islands painted scene.
It now has become a colourful art piece for my flower garden. The flowers that Dream ate.
