Quick! Paint on this...

I like the fact that my friends know I can be challenged to paint anything, anywhere, on any surface.

My good friend Jesse asked me to paint a "quick" painting on his doorbell cover. I few weeks later he got the piece below. But I have to say, I learned the limitations of some surfaces - such as this old plastic with a faux weave pattern in it. It took three layers of gesso, but the sides were still scratching off easily. After a combo of fixative, spray paint and varnish, I hope this piece stays intact for awhile.
