Today’s Painting for You: Dragons No. 1
Today’s painting for you:
“Dragons No. 1”, Oil on Wood, 2.5×2.5 inches, 2012 (sold)
Something a little different for you today. This tiny painting – it would fit comfortably in the palm of my hand – is a closeup of one of my favorite props.
It’s a heavy Chinese incense burner… actually the first thing I ever bought on eBay. The sellers described it as ancient and silver, and of course it’s neither. I had no illusions about that when I clicked the buy button, and thought that $60 was a pretty fair price for a neat reproduction object.
And so it remains in my studio. I paint it from time to time, and burn incense in it slightly more often. I’m glad it’s here.
I hope you enjoy it!
