"Fishing Float"

I found this float in a park the other day and was attracted by its vibrant fluorescent colors. It gives a wonderful texture contrast against the metal pot in this painting. Plastic items usually give an impression of cheapness, and not every artist likes to paint them. Well in some cases, they do have a position in art. Next time my wife going shopping, I will ask her to buy me a rubber ducky.

I have used floats like that many times in the fairly distant past. The colors sing beautifully in this work.
Looking forward to the rubber ducky masterpiece!

Great painting.
