I want this to be a record of my journey from architectural illustrator to fine arts painter, focusing on landscape and still life subjects. There is so much to learn, but this is more for the journey than the destination.

"Red Oil Can" SOLD
This is an oil can built, I think, in the 1940's or 50's and now is collectible, which I find amazing. Somehow oil cans have become desirable, which shouldn't be much of a stretch for me, as I find high-performance tire tread designs exciting. Really. I'm going to do a few more traditional still lifes, but not like the Americana style that I have worked in before....a bit more formal. I really enjoyed painting this but a little more "elegance" is being suggested by my wife. More elegant than a collectible oil can?
