Containers



18" x 28" (diptych), oil on canvas, 2001, private collection

I love the mirror-like reflections and distortions in polished stainless steel, chrome, whatever, and they're really fun to paint, whether in oils here or in watercolours in some of my paintings of classic cars.

Of course, combining several objects with reflective surfaces and adding transparent glass to the mix makes it kind of tricky for me to keep track of everything while I'm painting, but the end result is worth the extra concentration required.
