Hamilton Beach - Model G

Hamilton Beach - Model G
oil on canvas
24'' x 24"

I finally finished up the latest Hamilton Beach Mixer, which I plan to offer to Stricoff Fine Art. I have now moved on to the next piece. Karen had been on my case lately to paint another loaf of bread, and Wynne Falconer recently expressed a desire for another pb&j, so I've got a new composition going which incorporates both of those elements. It's been a while since I've done a loaf of bread in cellophane, and it feels good to have one on the easel. I just completed my second day on it, and so far it's coming along nicely. I think I was biorhythmicly ready to do this particular painting.

Neil, What a beautiful painting, color is right on, perfect!

This is exceptional! Love the light. It's not the kind of light you usually have in a kitchen, which adds an interesting quality.

Totally agree with Stephen, colors are just great and perfect.This subtle palette with a bit of "turquoise" in the left part reflections enhances the 3d illusion on this unique vintage subject.
Inspiring.

I found your blog on Chris Beck's list of blogs and remembered that I have seen your work in some art magazine not too recently. Although I am not an oil painter (watercolor, acrylic, mixed media) I totally am in awe of your exquisite work. Because I am new to your blog (I have it bookmarked now) I am unsure what you mean by "ebay paintings". These are paintings you paint for auction? Is there a link somewhere I can go to where you explain this more? Sounds so interesting. Hope you will drop by my blog someday too...ginnystiles.blogspot.com.
thanks again for your wonderful and amazing work and I love the subject choices!!! I do love to do still life and so am really amazed and interested in your subject matter.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate you all taking the time to leave a comment. Ginny I do sell small paintings on ebay from time to time. There is a link to those auctions at the top of the page.

Totally unrelated to the art, which is gorgeous, but where did you get your Model G? I just finished stripping one down, power-coating everything but the motor housing, changing out the lube and putting it all back together. I'm very curious about the history of these. It looks to me like yours may also have been repainted. Is that the case?
