Book Guardians oil painting

In a further effort to blow the stink of computer off me, I painted these gargoyle bookends tonight. Crude but colourful. Big bold strokes. Nothing but fun. Oil on 18"x24" canvas.

Rusty toy truck

I've been preoccupied with pushing pixels lately but I'm itching to paint so I set this up as a possible still life subject. It's a cast iron toy truck, once owned by my uncle. He was a body mechanic and had a great collection of toy cars. Visually, I like the splashes of rust but I'll be cleaning it off before I put it back on the shelf.

Cod Liver oil vintage ad

I took advantage of yet another sleepless night to play around with a vintage ad (circa 1880s) as a possible 2-colour t-shirt design. The graphic shows an option for a light colour shirt and one for dark. I love the line "Palatable as milk" (though they had me at "hypophosphites").

Got together with my friend for some painting tonight. We settled on some bottles as a subject and spent about 2 hours painting them. This is my effort... a little 8"x10" canvas with oils. (excuse the glare... kind of a crappy photo) And for some reason I chose to sign my name BIG and BOLD. Wrong brush, wrong colour. Bah. Doesn't matter... had a bit of fun.
