Block Party

  • A crazy contraption of the most festive sort

    With every block dropped into the bucket, our toolbox captives get one step closer to joining the birthday party, already in progress. But wait! There is a problem - if the dump truck doesn’t work fast enough, the pesky candle will burn through the string - imprisoning our friends for good.

  • If you have been reading my website, you may have surmised that love painting in the abstract style as much as I do realism.

    In this painting, I had the joy of using abstract painting techniques in order to make the tin bucket look more realistic - a bit of covert artistry that was a total joy to paint. To create the look of the galvanized tin, I daubed the paint with scrunched up paper - adding layer after layer until the surface looked just like weathered metal.

    Other details

    I have been a fan of solving word jumbles since I was child and I couldn’t resist adding one here: The blocks in the image spell “BLOCK PARTY.”
