Toy Soldier | 5"x7" | oil on hardboard
My boys have hundreds of these that they play with in our basement.
This one happens to be gray, rather than the standard army green. I like the look and feel of these army men, and when you study them closely they each have some unique features. I especially like the extra edges of plastic residue left over from the molds they were poured in. I tried to paint some of them in this.
I might be painting more of these. My son Jack says this is his favorite blog piece thus far. A high compliment from one of my favorite critics.
