12"x8" oil on canvas panel ••• I was going to title this "Thing Two-The Larger" just as I had done with the second painting of Thing One, but then I realized I have never painted this mischievous imp at 6"x4". And it is not as though 12"x8" is all that big. • Many of the toys you see me paint have been thoroughly cussed out. Especially those with hard edges and/or pointy thingies. This is because I probably stepped on them at some point trying to cross a dark room. Who needs ninjas when you have toys that are just as deadly? Most of their titles should actually be something like "LEGO Darth #$%&?#@ Vader" or "Cute Little Ceramic Bunny with Pointy %$#@&# Ears." • These two are unique in that they are plushy toys. • Anyway... Once I painted Thing One (shown below), it seemed only appropriate that I paint his partner in crime, Thing Two. So, here he is.
