Bright magenta and orange Zinnias contrast with the Sixties lavender marbled ceramic vase. One of Plymouth's last concept cars, the Pronto Spyder n 1:24 scale sits alongside a1:43 '67 Shelby GT350 and three Matchbox size VWs.
This is a striped vase I've painted with flowers all the way around it. It's a composite material, and those black and white stripes are actually grooves in the vase, giving it a great texture to look at and to touch. There is a little brownish-gray mouse visible from this side at the bottom. Next to the vase is the tail-end of my early 20th century horse-drawn Borden's milk wagon. I love the colors on the vintage tin and wood toy, and use variations of them in many of my pieces of art. The wagon is always on a shelf in whatever room I'm working in, so I can be inspired by it.
