Dress Pattern Painting
Last night I finished this painting, "Dress Pattern No. 9488." Oil on scrap tin. The idea for this comes from when I was a kid in the early 1970's watching with fascination as my mother would sit at her sewing machine, painstakingly making her own clothes at home. A few weeks back while snooping around on ebay for some painting ideas, I stumbled upon some of these dress patterns for sale. The memory of my mother making dresses came flooding back.
This painting will be heading to a show in Chicago at Gallery KH this coming July.

Little Blue Bottle
I did this painting yesterday while watching the NFL Playoffs on TV. It's of a little blue bottle that I found a few years ago (I think its a Phillips Milk of Magnesia bottle). It's done in oil paint on a small 5" x 7" tin box. I haven't done any painting in about two months so to get back into it I decided to start out small. You can click on the image above for a more detailed look.
