Magnet Machine, 16 x 20, oil on canvas
This is the second of the scrap yard series. This baby picks up anything, as long as it is made of steel. It's technical name is Link Belt 5800, but I nicknamed it the Magnet Machine. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to move huge pieces of metal around with this? Probably a boy thing. I painted it from the front so the extreme foreshortening would add drama and depth to the painting. Next subject, the CAR CRUSHER!
