Painting of an LED screw-mount light

This is an LED bulb you can use in a vintage dynamo-powered bicycle tail light.  So much easier than re-engineering modern LED circuits into the antique light housing! Just screw it in and ride away with a much brighter light. 10,000 hour lifespan and  a (short) standlight feature that stays on when you stop.

Self-portrait ID card paintings

I paint portraits of people's ID cards. It started out on a whim, but I've done a fair number of them now. I like that they're almost sculptures (I made this 6 foot oil on linen painting with rounded corners), and the undertow of this being the State's view of you. And I think people like little things made big.

Paintings – ID Cards

Sizes range from 4" to 6', in watercolor or oil.
