“Bottle, Urchin And Oil Can” 10x10

Oil On Hardboard 10x10

This painting began as a happy accident. A few weeks ago I went to my favorite flea markets in Irvine CA. It is held the first Sunday of each month. I get there early and poke through every booth searching for something that inspires me. On this Sunday I found the bottle, the little oil can (I collect these) and the sea urchin shell. When I got home I unwrapped them and placed them on the kitchen counter. As soon as I saw them all together I realized that together they made a very pleasing arrangement. The texture of the shell against the smooth glass and the slightly discolored corroded metal of the oil can all worked in harmony.
