8x6in oil on linen Not for Sale
Day 13 in the 30 in 30 Days Challenge
My personal goal for this challenge - to paint only what I have
never painted or thought of painting before.
A quick study of my marionette, Puppet Pete.
I found this little guy at a garage sale and the owner told me
his name and actually kissed him goodbye. I was startled
to hear PP say goodbye too! I fell for it... and much laughter
and good humor filled the room..
They must have had a lot of fun with their kids back in the day!
He is made out of wood which is nice. How his joints
are made is quite fascinating to me.
I always wanted to find a way to place him into a still life.
This is the first time I have painted Pete and I know I need
to do it a few times to get familiar with him.
