7" x 5" oil on panel
This is the first in my "Hardware Series". I used to do a lot of woodworking and still enjoy making some things out of wood. For years I have admired tools, especially old tools. Some of these tools are works of art themselves and this awl is a beautiful piece to use or look at. I thought, why not let the tools be still lifes like a flower or food? They deserve to be in the spotlight.
