power tools

Sorry for the late post this morning.  We had a major storm yesterday which caused a power outage so I read by candle light and happened upon an article which lead me to the work of this wonderful artist, Luke Martineau.  I happen to love supplies and really good tools and these paintings are so inspiring to me.
 How wonderful is this painting of pitchers, mugs and tools.
A great collection of brushes and a cup of tea.
My kind of power tools.

We all have to find ways and tools to power through any kind of weather.

Thank-you Luke for your kind e-mail and I do hope you start a blog soon.
Your work is marvelous.

I used to love to volunteer in my son's art class, in part because it was so much fun to be around all the art supplies! One of my new favorite teas to drink is chai - perfect for this time of year, especially on the cooler days!

Super paintings Patricia. Thanks for sharing Luke's work with us.
Always in awe of talented artists.
Hope the storm not too bad, and all back to normal now.
Have a lovely day,

Wonderful paintings. Love seeing the tools that paint the art used as art themselves.

One can almost smell the paint from those painting. I love the stripy jug with brushes, it reminds me of art collage and the fact that brushes also managed to find a way of being dunked into a cup of tea.
