Day 6

Korean War Veteran, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel

This is a painting of my husband's granddad's lighter that he had during the Korean War. It's not a zippo type lighter, on the bottom it says it's a "Whirlwind Superlative Automatic Lighter" made by Penguin. I think it's pretty neat.

It's sitting on a small wooden box I got from his other grandpa. I like that something of both of his grandfathers are in this piece.


  1. I love how you're doing so much with reflections and refractions of light so far in this series. :)

  2. Am still amazed your are doing so remarkably detailed paintings so quickly! lol
    Am rather envious :) x
