If I only had a heart...(10"x10" oil on canvas board)

Take II

So here is a tin man robot, a can of tuna and opener. Inspired by a friend of mine who loves both tuna and tin robots. Why can't they go hand in hand? Do the machines that are our hands have emotions? Also inspired by Inspiration All Around Us 'falling in love' this week. I think I may have to paint in some more additions to this scene, your suggestions are welcome! Thank you :)

A bit more on Tin Toy Blue Aerial Robot. He, or should I say her? Is a red footed, clockwork robot which shuffles along with a nice side to side motion. Arms hang at the sides and are freely jointed so they swing a little as he (she?) moves. What a fine looking robot. Come to think of it, perhaps it is me that loves tin robots and not my friend!

Take II - I had another dabble. After seeing a few other inspired paintings I thought I needed to add more atmosphere. Perhaps it is now love triangle? :) I like this painting a story business! I've also finally decided to start signing my paintings! SEE, my initials. All have dates scribbled on the dates, along with the title. I've bought some lovely nautral coloured linen vancas boards, can't wait to start on them!

Moroccan Lemons (12"x12" oil on canvas board)

This was my dash attempt of the online art forum Inspiration All Around Us
I need to fix the top of the carafe as its not quite right, but I'll get around to it once it dries. Next challenge is HUGE and I'm hoping to start on it soon.
