Oil Can Collection

5"x 5" original watercolor

This is my own collection of small
oil cans. They are worn and dented
but still have great color and shape.

I took a few days off, mostly because I
simply did not have time to get a painting
finished. Actually, not even started.
The weekend was spent showing and I

did work on a large painting. Sunday was
spent visiting Abbey and Ben in DC.
Actually that was wedding planning which
did not involve me! Monday I needed to
run back to Chadds Ford to pick up the paintings
that did not sell, then a stop to see my Mom
and then it was track practice. Today...
I had my class in the morning and I was able
to start the oil cans. I wanted to get back to
some still life subjects so I looked around the
house for my inspiration. I have never painted
these cans and they have nice color so I went
with it. I had to stop early because of a track meet.
We won!! Congrats to my kids. I only got home
at 7:30 so I had to get right back to the painting.
10:30 pm.... not the latest I have finished!

They look great Andy - so full of character and colour as you say.
