. . . striped and circled

Heavy Equipment II, mixed media on canvas, 16 x 16"

Had another good day painting. These are small and quick and down and dirty, with no expectations and no worries about their saleability. . . just for the sheer pleasure of seeing what I can come up with. This painting is another based on photographs I took of earthmoving equipment at a nearby construction site, and really looks a lot like a bunch of other paintings I have done. Maybe that's called "finding your own style." I continued to evaluate and experiment with the painted paper towels, and carved a couple of stamps (including the single circle stamp shown at the bottom on this piece.) Okay, carving a circle is pretty easy, but still satisfying in the results. I have another piece set up and ready to go, the base coat on it and ready for texturizing. I have also continued to experiment with other residue of my art-making (which is a fancy way of saying I've been going through the trash) to create random works of art, which is the most fun of all. You'll be amazed to see what I have come up with.

Manufacturers of heavy construction equipment are being particularly hard hit by the current record prices of commodities, such as steel, oil, iron ore and rubber. Yes. we have a great industry. I want to buy this equipments at
