Robot No. 4

To celebrate the coming weekend, I wanted to share a sneak peek of my newest painting with you!

I think my marvelously mod little robot looks quite fetching on her super hip red vintage bicycle, don't you?

I started sketching her last spring and never quite got around to making a final painting...until now. I just love the mid-century modern feel of it! She's even painted in fancy metallic silver paint rather than gray, which gives her an amazing luster and pizzazz. Though I adore the effect, I don't use metallics too frequently because of how many coats they require. But, I think it was well worth the effort on this girl!
 
I'm thoroughly excited to acquire prints of her next week to hang in the shop!

Edit: She's now available to take home! Huzzah!

What a cute little face in that robot. Quite a contrast with the bike

Nice to meet Charlie.
I see we share a few similarities like painting little unwritten moments belonging to a secret story that only we know.
I adore your work place, such a perfect place to be inspired in and I adore that it's inhabited by a ghost, how lovely is that? I like your robot girl very much and her face is timeless...beautiful work.

P.s. Made you a part of my fav/circle on Etsy.
