Hay Hook

I miss my Scanner! If I take pictures of my paintings during the day, when the light is bright, so I don't have to use the flash, I don't get the blue background. I guess the solution is either paint eariler in the day or wait till morning to shoot. I wanted to get this posted tonight because I am trying to get back to painting every day; so you get blue. Looks like my shadow is a little off too. I was working from an imagined light direction since the lamps were casting odd shadows.

When I was growing up, my grandfather had these hooks hanging around all over the barn, we used them to move the bales of hay. Deadly looking things none the less. Found this one laying around my moms house.
