Half Perc No.3

Half Perc No.3
oil on panel
6'' x 6"

Of all my percolators, I think this Coffee Master is my favorite. Partly because it was a wedding gift to my parents in the early 50's, and as such inhabits my earliest memories, and partly because of its wonderful shape. The complete coffee maker is composed of two parts, and as yet I haven't painted it in its full configuration. I just love the look of each individual component on its own. Its Tweedle Dee shape, and mirror like surface combine to give you a terrific distortion of the percolators surroundings. One of these days I'm going to buckle down, and put the two pieces together, and paint a large version of the entire appliance. If you'd like to bid on this painting, click here.
