Work-in-progress "Three Pears"

6 x 10
Today, I am posting this work-in-progress. Got most of the under painting done in gray tones, then layered in some basic hints of color. My goal here is to try to capture the wood and convey a good sense of the over all texture.

1950's Robot Man

5x7 - Oil on Masonite
Available $75
Had fun painting another robot from the 1950's. I did this with a quick brush as to give life to him and a sense of movement. The ladders in the background made him seem a bit lost and out of his element.

Chop Sticks

Chop Sticks

2.5 x 12.5 Inches
Oil On Masonite
Available $95
The detail work took me a bit longer than I first thought. Finally, I got it pulled together. I love the way the two chop sticks fit together to form the portrait of a traditional Asian woman.

While searching for new material, I can across these old plastic toys on ebay. I could not stop laughing. Obviously, they were made to be ridding horses. But from behind the just crack me up.
