Telechron Musalarm Clock Radio

4"x6" oil on raymar panel. As you can probably tell, I like old radios. Tube or transistor, wood or bakelite or plastic—I don't care as long as they look cool. This clock radio, fashioned in a kinda Mayan architectural style, caught my eye a while back. The brilliant idea was to include it in one of my still life landscapes, but for some reason the poor thing just sat there in my studio never being included in any of those paintings (probably because of its canted sides). Well, it just sat there staring at me—freaking me out a bit—so I thought I would give the funky thing its due and paint it. Here it is getting ready to be pushed off a cliff for constantly staring at me.
