This one was a lot of fun to paint- the texture came through in such an interesting way! And of course the object itself, this gorgeous old wrnech that is so sturdy and beautiful but had been used as a hammer enough that the metal is all battered and turned out at one end.... it's just fascinating :)
I am an artist living and working in Hillsborough, North Carolina, and have been maintaining this blog as a daily painting project since January 1, 2008. Each of the daily paintings and studies posted here is available on Etsy. My larger and more involved works can be rented from me or purchased through Etsy, from the Broomfields Gallery in West Jefferson, North Carolina, from Bull City Art and Frame in Durham, North Carolina, or from me directly by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
