Toy Tin Robot Painting

On a recent trip to my brother and sister-in-law's home on Olney, Maryland, I spotted this little toy robot that my sister-in-law played with when she was little. I have been looking for a cool little retro robot to do a painting of and this one seemed appropriate. This is oil on scrap tin (the tin here has a faint wood grain pattern printed on it) 26" x 26." This piece is reserved for a upcoming show I have scheduled here in Charlottesville in March. Click on the image above for a closer look.

Animal cracker painting

Once again I've turned to a favorite subject to paint. The Barnum's Animal Cracker box. This version is in oil on a scrap metal panel, 18" x 16." This is for a series of "Junk" food paintings I'm currently working on. Click the image above for a closer look.

Dr. Pepper meets Doc Marten

I recently finished this piece titled Dr. Pepper Meets Doc Marten, oil on scrap aluminum, 23" x 23". The title is derived from the fact that the shoe, a classic mens Doc Marten, is painted on the aluminum fragment of an old Dr. Pepper sign. Click on the image above for a closer look.
