I also found some new still life material. These will be next in line to paint. Lately I've been inspired by mid-century modern items and this radio and typewriter definitely interest me. I found the radio on ebay and the typewriter was my grandma's.
Finally!!! I started this painting over a year ago and just finished it last week. As with most things, this piece took longer than I anticipated. I worked on it on and off through out the year. It measures 40" x 32" and as always, oil on panel. The "Coke and Cooler" painting is the largest painting I've done since 2011. The original plan didn't call for a lady bug, but I thought I needed something to get the viewer closer to surface of the painting. Hopefully, I can submit this to some local competitions, and then later feature it in my next solo show.

I'm very impressed by your paintings. After a lifetime involved in art, I am attempting my firsts trompe l'oeil painting, increasing my appreciation for your work.

Thanks Michael! Trompe l'oeil painting is definitely one of those niche styles of painting. Since it requires such accurate rendering and sharp lines, the process feels really different from traditional painting.
