We have a tie!! YALE LOCK by Raymond Logan aaaand CRACKED AND READY by Michael Naples

I couldn’t resist this lock. Not only because I chose a key a couple of days ago and it was so fitting- no pun intended- but because the paint is so amazing! All of those colors that Raymond used to make up the would-be ‘flat’ areas give such depth!

And the eggs… What a sweet composition! And so delicately painted, I could reach out and just crush those eggshells in my hand. I can even see the thin membrane on the inside of the eggs. Wonderful!

And so, today we have a tie. These are both great painters whose work I’ve chosen as a favorite before. They certainly did not disappoint today! (Not that they ever do, mind you)
