|Sharp | 10 x 20 | Oil on canvas|
This is the second of two smaller paintings I'll be shipping to Tree's Place Gallery for a two person show I'm sharing with Karen in July. The painting of the crayons got me in a kind of nostalgic mood for my childhood so when I came across this pencil sharpener I thought I'd give it a try. It really reminded me of the one that sat on the teachers desk in elementary school, and you'd have to ask permission to come up to the front to sharpen your pencils. I remember it always had that wonderful aroma of cedar shavings.
