This is a 36" tall x 24" wide oil on gallery wrapped canvas, just completed 95% and putting aside for about a week to work on something else! I collect antique tin toys and my "Strauss" tin handcar is in remarkable condition considering it is nearly 100 years old, but alas is missing the wind up mechanism. Still a treasured part of my collection! THe primate is just because I love chimps! This piece took an Honorable Mention in the Ridge Art Fine Art Competition January 2017.
