Metal cans are wonderful to paint. All the reflections show up. I was weaing a blue shirt when I painted this. I love the abstract designs. There's another idea for a large canvas-just paint the reflections. Pringle cans are great for long brushes too. But that can also lead to an unscheduled trip to the kitchen. You can tell I'm a collector, my small studio (a spare bedroom) is jam packed with props, containers, and of course my finished works. I'm always saving something just in case I want to paint it. I get ideas just as I'm going to sleep so it's nice to have things stashed away.
