Sea Shell #1, oil on cradled board, 12 x 12
This shell came into my possession recently and I just had to paint it.
I chose a limited palette using only raw sienna, white and cadmium red.
The simple background makes the detail of the shell pop out.
I've created 2 other paintings with this same shell. Stay tuned for further images.

Astroray Gun, 18 x 24, oil on cradled board
This space gun is one of my vintage tin toys. I like 'Setting the Stage' in a box because of the light and shadows.

Flying Machine, oil on cradled board, 12 x 12
I have a few metal airplanes in my toy collection. All of them are well worn and show signs of a lot of play!
This trompe l'oeil shows one of these planes against a background of early plans for The Flying Machine.
This is another in my Vintage Toy and Flight series.
