Oil Painting Challenge "Striped Socks" figurative and still life

"Socks First", Oil on Canvas, 24" x 18"
SOLD to a collector in Massachusetts

This painting was inspired by my group challenge of "Striped Socks". Instead of depicting simply a pair of socks, I chose to create a figurative work. The socks provided the story.

  3. I love the Hopper-esque feeling of your paintings. This is brilliant!
