Painter


A wood, double-sided sign, 2-feet tall, showing what appears to be a house painter. If he's not a house painter, he's a handyman. The artist undoubtedly tried to make both sides identical, but luckily he failed and so we have two folky gentlemen. The paint surface is heavily alligatored and the brushwork is a bit sloppy, as you can see from the paint drips.

  2. I love the texture on his shirt. I can't tell if it's intentional or if it's just rusting, but either way, it looks really cool.

  3. Hi, Professor Chaos. It's a wood sign so it's alligatored paint, not rust.
