Car Part

Here's that Ford 9-inch again. I believe this is from 1998. I had some trouble with the circles on this one. I was really beginning to hate the rust color by the time I painted this one, though I still love looking at the intricacies of the part. If only it was all chrome!

Blue Marble

Here's another one of my small marble paintings. This one was particularly difficult because of the lighting and the fact that the stripe is all blue. I had to use several different blues (among other colors), and I still don't think I got enough variegation. It's funny how such a simple subject can be such a challenge! I spent approximately 7 hours altogether on it.
