This painting was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. The wood grain, the color or the stapler... it was all very difficult. It took me 3 or 4 times just to get the stapler color. But here we are... done. The original reference photo for this was done by SugarPush on Etsy... her products and photos are beautiful!
you can see a couple stages of this painting here:
I didn't happen to take any progress shots in between because frankly... I forgot. Whoops! In the end, I'm not 100% happy with it, but I need to move on. Hope you enjoy it!
Also, as usual, the title comes from a great Mike Doughty song called American Car.
