Painted Cigar Boxes

I love painting cigar boxes. I’ve done quite a few lately so I wanted to post some photos of the collection so far and perhaps inspire you to create one for yourself. Some photos show the boxes on my easel, in their new homes or on display. I’ve also been making giclee reproductions of some of my more popular paintings. Some of these boxes are for sale. Many of the painted designs shown here plus others are available in print and note card format at my Etsy shop.
