Beast in the Box – fabric/oil painting

Lil’ Miss Pink Tonka

I feel like I'm in a different world...hot pink is very unusual for me! Although I might be going through a phase, because there's also a pink hibiscus flower painting that's waiting for me to finish it! But this oil painting of the little pink Tonka truck is special...
