"Got Milk?" ................... oil ................... 9"x12"
I found this wooden toy at a thrift store years ago; this is the first time I've painted it. For the most part it was quite enjoyable and I like the simple color structure. I've got to say the hardest part was the milk canisters-- they were a bit like painting eggs. Something about the symmetricality and cylindrical nature. At one point I found myself wishing I'd done this on a hard smooth panel with acrylics, as the slightest bump in the canvas played havoc with the ellipses. but I haven't painted that way in years, so I carried on as best as I could.
Now that I see it small there's couple small details that pop out to me as in need of fixing...maybe tomorrow.
I also looked up the Sifo Milk Truck (ala Antiques Road Show) and found out it was manufactured in 1954 by the The Sifo Novelty Company, located in Norway, Michigan and St.Paul, Minnesota. It's going for $45-60, although mine's missing one milk bottle, and has no pull string. It's fun though; I think I'll keep it around for a model.
