The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

April 28 Cream Can

Over the years, I've painted on saw blades, mail boxes, shovels and cream cans as well as walls, doors, and floors. I was commissioned to do this cream can with a deadline of May 1. With the request to have trees, a lake, the camper and the 4-Wheeler, here it is as the painting of the day- on a cream can.

12" x 12"  Don't think for a minute that I could charge, let's see, the price of day 118: $1180.


  1. Wow! What a lot of detail! Very nice. Though you missed a day due to illness, I think you more than made up for it on the days before and after.

  2. Thanks, glad you like it. Just wait until you see the next one : ) A friend has a great idea of a white can with a blue willow pattern.
