On the Can
Oil on board, 7" x 5"
$125 plus $6 shipping in U.S.
I admit it, I painted this so I could give it that title. But I've got to give credit where it's due--inspiration came from my email friend, Karen. She made a pun about my "Apple and Paint Can" post, saying it was "An apple doing the can-can." I countered with "Better than an apple on the can." And she wrote back "LOL-Even that could be material for your 'odd couples.'" As you can see, I always keep my correspondence on the highest intellectual level.
I did enjoy painting this, though. That's a can of my mural paint, a pourable acrylic called Novacolor, which I buy in quantities from quarts on up to 5 gallon buckets. And I would definitely say this painting belongs to my Odd Couple series.

I just love the light on this. Very cool--and a great title, of course...
I'm laughing Don because I just didn't get this for a while - we would say "on the loo". However, your reflections on the can are just superb.. :-D
You certainly have a unique sense of design. It works!
I couldn't wait to see what "on the can" turned out to be.
Good one! The painting, too.
Thank you, Amy, and welcome to my blog. You are certainly multi-talented--a professional writer and accomplished painter all in one.
Ha, yes Sheila, we speak the same language but not exactly, don't we? Especially with these slang terms. And if I had titled this "On the Loo," it would have been even more confusing, wouldn't it? :>)
Thanks a lot.
Thanks for the visit and kind words, Onpainting.
Thanks, Mary--it was kind of fun to do.
