"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?
