Sunbeam Mixer

Sunbeam Mixer  |  24 x 24  |  Oil on panel

My friends Karin Jurick and Brett Trowbridge found this Sunbeam mixer at a flea market, and knowing of my fondness for vintage kitchen appliances, bought it for me. It had a great shape, and lots of chrome. I especially liked it viewed from the front. Wonderful reflections, and the Sunbeam "S" is terrific. I used a Gesso Board for this, which has a very smooth surface, and took some getting used to. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I may have to try it once more before I make a final judgement on this brand of panel. I'll be sending this to my new gallery in San Francisco, C. K. Contemporary, along with the Big Drill from Tree's Place Gallery and a couple more to be determined later.
