Paint Party Friday.....machine à boule de gomme

Hi Everyone...

Happy Friday...I seriously don't know where the week has gone! It must have been a fun once since it flew by in the blink of an eye....I was wondering what to paint this week and then it hit me....how much I love those vintage inspired Gum Ball Machines......even better the ones you find in Paris....called "machine à boule de gomme" .......so here it is .....my ink and watercolour of a Parisian Gum Ball Machine.....I think it is tres bien and so much fun!

I have added prints of this painting in my shop....I think they would be so much fun in the kitchen or any fun room of the house....

Have a super amazing Day and Weekend Everyone....

Happy Paint Party Friday and Happy Creating Everyone...

What a great gum ball machine. They are awesome. I have a gum ball machine but don't know where to get the gum for it. Great piece Diana, as always. Happy PPF!

I love this cheerful painting! I've always loved gum ball machines, too, though I haven't seen one in Paris..yet! I'm amazed by all of the detail you got on the decorative metal part of the machine. Great job!

I can hear the clink of my penny in your lovely machine. Probably takes more than a penny (and the gum balls are smaller) today. Beautifully done!

I always smile when I see your work. Really wonderful painting and brings back a lot of memories for me (mostly of my crying and carrying on when mom wouldn't let me have money for the gumballs) LOL HPPF
