More for the Big 300

Here is more of my work for the big 300! I did a couple of vintage still life paintings.  I do so love to thrift and find so much inspiration from my treasure collecting, even though Tim calls it my junk collecting. When I was pregnant I went and completely did a huge purge of my house but have the itch to start collecting again.  
Vintage fan- 8x8 oil on wood.  I think painting the square plug was the best part.
A couple of Jaz clocks.  I'm not sure why but painting clocks always makes me happy. :)
  
Details: 
The Big 300 is an annual event that over 300 amazing artists paint 10 panels and they are all 8X8 and every piece goes for only $40.  This is a cash and carry show- which means you can take the work off the wall and then take it home right then and there! There is a very long line to get into this amazing event- so come early.  
Date: December 8th 2:00 pm-9:00 pm- show runs until January 13th
Place: Peoples Art of Portland
700 SW Fifth (3rd floor) People’s is Suite 4005
Pioneer Square Mall, downtown Portland

Both of these pieces are just amazing Erika, I honestly think that they're going to do great, like Doll I really love the aquiline colours, what a set of fantastic pieces.
