Remington Rand No. 2: In Progress - Day Twelve

Remington Rand No. 2   |   18 x 24   |   Oil on panel

























Work on the typewriter continues to progress. I finished the underpainting of the keys last night. Now I've got to do the linkages and the body. When that's done I start all over again.

Remington Rand No.2: In Progress - Day One

Remington Rand No.2   |   18 x 24   |   Oil on panel

























Well, I thought I'd be going with the "fun" option in choosing my next subject but after consulting my brain trust the consensus was that I should go with "challenging". This one is going to take a bit of time, so there will probably be a number of in progress posts. There's not much to see here, but I figured I'd start with day one.

Moped: Complete

Moped   |   24 x 24   |   Oil on panel


I finished up the Moped up last night. Currently I'm looking at options for my next painting. Bouncing back and forth between two "favorites". One will be very challenging and the other very fun. I'll eventually do both, but at the moment I'm leaning towards fun.

Moped: In Progress - Day 12

Moped   |   24 x 24   |   Oil on panel

























Day twelve, I've got the underpainting done and put a second pass on the background. Now for the best part, the refining layers. As usual, this will be the final post until the entire painting is complete.

Moped: In Progress - Day 7

Moving along. One week in. Kind of dark and muddy at this point. Successive layers will hopefully bring out the colors, chrome and tail lights.

I liked my painting "Honda Metropolitan" so much that I decided to follow it up with a Moped. I've got three days in so far.

Crystal Cherries

Crystal Cherries   |   12 x 12   |   oil on panel


























This will be my final painting for our two person show at Tree's Place Gallery this July. I've got two more very similar compositions which could, if combined with this one, possibly go together as a triptych. Or not . . . 

Now I've got to get going on a corporate commission. The client finally approved the composition and my panel should arrive tomorrow. This will probably keep me busy for the next few weeks.

Saltines

Saltines   |   12 x 12   |   oil on panel


























I've wanted to paint this stack of crackers for a while now, but to be honest, I was ascared of the cellophane wrapper. Really wasn't sure I could do it, but I decided to take the leap and give it a try. I figured if it came out bad I'd just scrap it and reuse the panel for something else. For the most part, I think it worked.

Pepsi Straw

Pepsi Straw   |   21 x 12   |   Oil on panel


























My plan for our two person show at Tree's Place Gallery this year is to have all my work limited to a 12 x 12 format. I've done one "soda" painting already and thought it needed a companion, so I've added a Pepsi to the mix. I love the spiral bottles and really love the bottle cap graphic on the carrier.

Stapler

Stapler   |   12 x 12   |   Oil on panel

























My brother was in town for Christmas and while he was here we spent some time knuckling around antique shops in Old Chamblee. At one of those stores I spotted this vintage stapler. It had a cool shape, was kind of shiny, and I thought, "this may be something to paint". In July it'll be shipped north to Cape Cod for our two person show at Tree's Place Gallery.
