This Trompe L'Oeil oil painting is all about our favorite cowboy, Howdy Doody. With his patent, and accessories you can see how to make a cowboy. What cowboy is
complete without his badge, handkerchief, garters, boots and plaid
shirt? He is shown hanging from a rustic wood panel . Howdy was the
first tv character to have a copyright.
Brer Rabbit Molasses, 16 x 20, oil on cradled board
recently read that one of the most collected items is vintage cooking
pieces. I happen to be one of those collectors. Many are keepsakes
handed down through family.
This Trompe L'Oeil painting shows a
1920's Brer Rabbit Molasses ad. The rabbit peeking from behind the ad is
a die cut 'premium' from the same company. The handmade (made by me)
chocolate girl and rabbit is from a vintage chocolate mold. And, yes, I
made the Ginger Bread Man, too, from a recipe in a vintage cookbook. The
other vintage items include wooden blocks, a ginger can and a cookie
I came across this Felix the Cat Crayon Box while engaged in my never ending search for vintage toys. The colors of the box and the pencils screamed out "Paint Me!" so I did. I don't know if any of the pencils are original to the box but I don't really care.
This Trompe L'oeil shows a box of colored pencils manufactured by the American Lead Pencil Company. These were called School Crayon Boxes although these are obviously pencils. Felix the Cat is painting up a storm!
By the way, Felix is one old cat! He first appeared around 1919 and is still going strong!
