Painting with oils

     I have finished another oil painting just to smell the paint and see if I still can. Here is my latest still life - a can of Sterno. I love the idea of canned heat or fire in a can. (Those of you who know me and of my fire sculpture will know what I mean).
     Anyway I like the challenge of rendering such an elusive element as fire with oil paint.


  1. We always expect flaming work from you Dave :)

    Great painting. Sterno always makes me think of an old Mad cartoon I read as a kid. I will have to look it up.

  2. I'd say this is very cool but...well, you know...it's hot!
