Another dandy my good man. How do you keep doing it so well and so consistantly? Great composition and moody light.

Best,
Todd

Okay, I have ONE oil can in my garage...Did you go on a scavenger hunt thru the neighborhood to collect all the cans? I wonder about things like this when I look at a painting. Where did the props come from?
It is truly a well thought out and beautifully painted picture....

Thanks Gail. As far as the oil cans go -- I just like them, so when ever I see an old one for sale I buy it. I am always on the look out for interesting things. You never know when they will come in handy.

There's something humorous about the small, upright can threatened by the imposing chaos of the larger ones...humanizing somehow. And of course its not chaos at all but another of your beautiful designs.

Thanks Don, great observation. When I was composing this painting I felt the little can gave the entire piece a feeling of stability. Without it, the composition would just be a jumble.

I so enjoy your work M. (Michael, Mitchell, Mark, Monty???) Just guessing..:) I found your work on daily painters and have followed you ever since. Your work has such a pristine quality. A untouch and unspoiled look about it. I do love it. I enjoy getting it directly to my email. Keep it up and keep them comin'!! C2
