In the mood for trying somethings new, I have a few of these vintage tins so I decided to paint on them.
Having painted vibrant colors in my paintings for sometime, I will be moving into some earth tones, like the recent Venice work. 

I have found some collectors have become very fond of impasto paintings. I have started a version of my own, that I think you will really love. I will post them as soon as I can. So here you go is a vintage tin primitive style with roosters.  Available here: Vintage Rooster Tins

Today we visit Venice, with sunlight and shadows. Who doesn't love the Old World Ambiance?

I wanted to share an awesome picture with you. When I first started getting these in my photographs it was a misty evening I thought... its rain.  Then I shot them on clear nights. Right away I cleaned my lens, thinking ... dust particles. Even after that I kept getting photos with them. Pretty cool, huh? Oops I just told my age! Do people use cool anymore?
