Painting Inside the Box -- Literally

A few years ago, while paying for a purchase, I noticed gift boxes tossed into a receptacle. When I spotted a box that looked like a book, I mentioned how much I liked it. The salesperson immediately gave me the box letting me know that its destiny was the landfill. Making art with the little object seemed like a much better idea. "Book of Memories" is what came of the unexpected gift. Since this piece just sold, I have been giving it thought, and wanted to share it. Here is the result:
