Retro - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas

Retro - 12 x 12 inches - oil on canvas
This funky orange rotary phone was the inspiration for this week's painting.  My parents bought this phone many years ago and I remember using it as a kid and having a sore finger from dialing.  The phone is solid as a rock and probably weighs at least 5 pounds. 

This painting has a harmonious feel as I chose to paint it on a mustard yellow surface with a dark brown background so that all the colors are analogous.  I threw in a few pops of green here and there just to add some interest.  

"Retro" is a 12x12 oil on canvas painting with a wood floating frame (see additional photos below).  This painting is available at Artists Corner and Gallery in West Acton, MA, or, you can buy it directly from me by clicking the Buy Now button below.
