I am so excited! I found the cutest old pull toy at the flea market this week. Cookie Pig is going to be perfect for a still life oil painting...I love the antique children's toys the best, as they always invoke a nostalgia, a happy feeling for most people. The colors are bright and cheerful, and I can add other fun things in with it, a tall toy or maybe a jump rope...any suggestions, anyone? What else do you think I should add to the painting? I want to add something alive, as well. Like the old Masters' Dutch paintings that added butterflies and bugs, I would like to add creatures as well. Maybe a tiny chipmonk? Or a bumblebee?
