Five things from the highway. Gouache, items are actual size & the composition is about 2.5" x 3".

I am submitting this to painters :iconpainters: Bring Out the Trash Contest. Recycling begins with realizing the value of the everyday items we throw out. That is what my miniatures are often about: appreciating the overlooked things that are typically disregarded and wasted even though they can actually be very beautiful.

You showed the same care to painting a collection of found objects that most artists do to a bowl of fruit. Great work.

The bottle caps have lost their minds and are convinced that they are grapes. :)

i like the warm colors and how little this actually is, looks just like a grouping of objects i'd find on my desk too haha so i had to say something about how nice a painting i think it is...
