A Spoon and Other Inventions

9" by 12" oil and collage on stretched canvas, unframed. I have a collection of vintage children's encyclopedias that I love. I enjoy the drawings, the colors and the way knowledge is organized and categorized. The section on inventions seems a bit naive in it's presentation, but, it truly is awe inspiring to think of all the amazing things that people have come up with. The collaged circles on my painting of the spoon include nylons, a zipper, sewing machine, a television and more. I don't know who invented the spoon, anyone know?  SOLD
