Bumpers made from old tires are common as seen here, as well as the traditional white or coloured bumpers. For a larger view, or to purchase click here.
This is in oil, still using a palette knife on an 8" x 16" panel. I may have the palette knife out of my system for a little while, as I return to other brush paintings. The smooth surface seems almost foreign after wielding a knife in the paint.
