"Ultimate Squeeze"

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x4.875" SOLD.

I am one of those people who squeeze the heck out of paint tubes. I don't know if I'm cheap or hate wasting but I'll squeeze them until my fingers hurt. Trust me that the Cadmium Red and Cerulean Blue have zero paint in them.

Michael, this painting really appeals to me - not just the subject (although me too, I squeeze every bit I can get out of them), but also the way you have composed the picture and the distance you have acheived and detail without fussiness. I really like it.

Michael, love the painting...I know what you mean with the Cad. Red and Cerulean Blue. I can't wait to see what you paint in 2008.

I squeeze 'em too then stick my palette knife in the hole to get all that's left.
