A Solvent Oil Can

I had been inspired by Brian Astle‘s paintings of daily studies – a singular object,  the use of a palette knife to texture the background and the losing of the edge.

This dated item I kept around for over 30 years. In my 20’s I had worked as a graphic artist and had used this to removed rubber cement or wax from the typeset text to reposition it. Definitely before computers. Nowadays, hitting “delete” is all that’s needed.
