Small still life, "Gettin a grip" Claudia Hammer 6" x 6" oil on canvas

I have decided to make all paintings a flat purchase fee instead of the bid/auction format.   I personally don't like the auction process so why should I ask anyone to use it.   For my painting subjects I've been boycotting things that rot, so here is another tool painting.   Personally I love doing the tools, I have enough of them to keep me busy for the next 6 months.  I know the glow of the awl would have showed up better if I had used another background color but I thought the yellow was fun.   I've noticed I've used a lot of yellow lately.  Sup with that?

What a beautiful painting of tools! it is both simple and complicated at the same time. The wonderful texture of the surface (counter?) they are sitting upon is amazing. Also the dimensionallity that you created with the screwdriver handle VERY SUBLELY is super!! The cast shadow colors are yummy---wonderful painting!
