F86 Sabre, oil on panel, 10.5" x 10.5". I am almost finished this one. It is a really shallow Trompe l'oeil so the illusion is fairly convincing. I'm not sure how old the toy is but the plane was popular between 49' and 56'. I guess I was primarily attracted to the goofy futuristic space age graphics in this particular toy. This is another painting in a series I have been working on depicting kitchy or campy objects in an attempt to poke fun at or understand the transformation that happens to objects when they are made into "art".
