Ansco Panda Camera

4"x6" oil on masonite panel. This cool looking little box camera was made during the fifties and was, I believe, considered a kids camera. I just thought it looked cool, so I painted it. Yes, my artistic vision is just that simple. Taking the strap off would have been problematic, so it stayed in the piece.    Spruced up my website a bit. Go take a look at it:

  1. What's cool is your jazzy background of purples and reds and dancing brush strokes and how you were able to make all those colors on the camera translate to "black". I wish I had your impeccable drawing skills.

    Thank you for your entertaining commentary. I still need to look and read through your entire blog. I hope you talk about your process one day. - Lisa

    1. Thank you for your comment, Lisa. I guess I should talk more process at some point, but by the time I take the photo and post, I am usually done with it in my mind and/or so extremely ticked off at my evil camera, that I just don't think about it. —Raymond/3
