HMS PLAYMOBIL

This is my painting for the TOYS show that opens April 1st at Gallery 1988 in LA. I'll be flying out for the opening and am psyched to go!

I really enjoyed painting this piece. It was challenging for me to come up with an idea that I felt was sophisticated while still meeting the guidelines of painting a child's toy. ( Solution - make Playmobil into the Royal Navy) I also have two smaller paintings that go along with this that were also a blast to paint, I will post them soon!
