Everything on this old porch was covered in rust so I wanted to carry the rust colors throughout the painting.

Thanks everyone, this one is pretty special.  My brother-inlaw loved photography and took some beautiful pictures but we couldn't get him to enter compotitions or at least sell prints, he had a low self esteem so when he passed away I got hold of this one photo of these milk cans, they were sitting on his grandpa's porch....so I had to do a painting of them in his memory.

Thank you Jose, every inch of the cans and kettle was covered in rust so I decided to carry the same colors throughout the painting.
