The Leaktight No. 8
oil on panel 6" x 8"
This little tarnished metal bucket was rediscovered in the great studio clean out in the winter of 2010 / 2011. The thing that made me keep it was the stamped name in the bottom - 'Leaktight No.8'.
It was just a paint bucket but a paint bucket with swagger - so I painted it to immortalize the little bucket. Plus I'm a sucker for shiny metal. As I was working in my state of concentration I realized the orange reflection is me in my orange anorack standing before the subject. The magic leaktight! Enjoy.
