Well, it is about a month after the 4th of July, but I can still be patriotic! This is the second hubcap I have officially finished and I am very pleased with how it came out. Considering painting is still very new to me, I am learning a lot and although the shading on the eagle was a challenge, I think I captured the fierceness of the bird.
I definitely got a little obsessed with this project – it is just so addicting when you see results the second color touches the hubcap. It is more exciting than pencil drawing. I also did not get much sleep last night because I was so close to finishing this project:) But, now I have great blogging material for this morning. It all worked out. I have two more hubcaps waiting to be painted, but after that I am going to have to keep my eyes peeled for future hubcaps. I have enlisted the whole family; we drive around on our daily routes, but always on the lookout for abandoned hubcaps now. It is a free medium to paint on – can’t go wrong.
