Defence of the Inanimate – Tin Mug No. 11 by 'H'

*Images are original works from 'Art by H's' collection
Oil on canvas - 100cm x 100cm

Having been avoiding oil my whole career, due to my love of painting quickly and the long drying times, I discovered a new technique to speed this process so decided to try it out on this piece.

I’ve always been a lover of Tom Robbins books and having recently re read “Skinny Legs and All”, where a sub story tells of a road trip from the viewpoint of some

inanimate objects, I was out rummaging in a local antique centre.

I came across this mug and thought to myself “what a cool mug”, no sooner had a thought that I imagined this inanimate object defending itself with a cry of “Who you callingMug!??

I’ve been around the world and seen sight you couldn’t dream of…” I bought it instantly and thus started my Defence of the Inanimate series!
