Another small "Painting a Day" still life set up in my studio. This small sailboat captures the innocence of childhood and a time when toys were often hand made. My son (now 17) played with this boat in the tub many at time as a small boy. I bet I have hot glued that sail on twenty times. This is one of those timeless toys that children never tire of... not many of those left!
Everyday objects painted from life is the essence of the "Painting a Day" art movement that is gaining momentum in the art collecting market.
