"Cathedral and Cookies"

It's no secret that many artists like to paint old things, and I love to do my "old things" paintings in acrylics so I can work quickly and use numerous layers to achieve interesting textures with worn woods and metals and such.  This one is a style of radio called "Cathedral" and tons of them were sold in the thirties and forties and now you can buy replicas, which have really bad speakers and a slot for CDs and casette tapes, and if anyone has any vinyl records ( I do ), there are "Crosley" radios that have turntables on the top.  I know because my aunt bought me one, and I'm going to try getting a good needle for it and we'll see what happens.  Thanks for coming by.
