“Tin can with pencils from my studio”
6x6 original oil
Email me to purchase this.

This is a personal favorite of mine. The composition is deceptively simple, yet bold and powerful. It's a humble subject, the tin can of pencils from my studio. But it has really loose, juicy brushwork that makes it sing! I used only the good strokes when painting this one.

In addition to the brushwork I also like the muted color. Yes, it appears to be gray, but there is beautiful color in there, too. (No black paint was used in the making of this piece.) This one really rings my chimes.

Email me if you can’t live without it. I take PayPal and personal checks. I ship to US only.

Oh, check out my newest CD Art Instruction e-Books on my website. By the way, my entire website has been renovated with a fresh new look. I hope you will take a moment to visit:
