Who doesn't love Legos? I had a huge set as a child! Love the thick brushstrokes in this one!!

Yummy texture!

I agree with Manon, love the broad brush strokes.
Loved Lego when I was a kid (as well as Erector sets)
Great work, Sheila

Looks like you had a lot of fun with this one Sheila. Luscious brush work.

Hellenne said...

Yummy and luscious is right! I'm thinking it's starting to look like a brownie and it makes me hungry! Love the brushstrokes!

On a 3x3 canvas??? How can you NOT have big bold brush strokes! I'm not sure my glasses are good enough for working that small, I'm quite impressed that you got the detail you did.

Nice brushstrokes! 3x3 is quite a challenge! Am I right when I say that the painting is smaller than its photo? We use the metric system in South Africa, I suppose you refer to inches, Sheila?

And yes Legos are such fun! I grew up without them, but the 4 children had almost a roomful....needless to say, a lot had to be rescued out of vacuum cleaner's way!

I LOVE looking at these little pieces enlarged this way! The texture looks juicy and delicious.

Leave it to you, Sheila, to find the beauty in a Lego! I realize I sound repetitive, but those brush strokes are wonderful! Like icing on a cake, truly! Great job on the shadows too!

You may be on to something here good job.

Ellen said...

I love the loose work and the great brushstrokes too, but I gotta tell you, as a mom of a kid who loved Legos what first pops in my mind is the excruciating pain of stepping on one when you're barefoot. But I LOVe the painting!

Rosemary said...

Oh Sheila - was this fun or what! You are on to something here! How about a whole series celebrating Legos continuing on with this juicy texture!
