"Faucets" oil

Sometimes it is very rewarding to paint an ordinary subject in a fresh way. I need to remind myself that it is what the artist brings to the subject that makes it wonderful.  This is not a new painting but it is one that has passed the test of time. It is one of those paintings that I still like after living with it for a long time. It hangs in my studio above my slop sink where I clean my brushes. It is a 16" X 20" oil painting. I will make a challenge. Paint something ordinary or ugly in a wonderful way.
