  • One of my many activities on the side is painting.

    Most of the fellows on the Rado forum know this, but I think most of you don't. I have painted since ...forever and one of the things I do paintings of is watch movements. This is the most recently completed piece.

      Wow, great detail and color - almost thought it was a photograph.

        Excellent, I have made knives for years, but I really envy someone who has real artistic or musical talent. Very nice...

                Thanks guys. Sorry for the late response. I got busy last week rescuing a giant vintage neon sign and that took up a bunch of my time, and continues to do so.

                I will post some more of my paintings as per Dave's request.

                      I don't have an artistic bone in my body. My stick figure people look like they were drawn by stick figure people. I am always amazed by what the human eye and hand can accomplish.

                        I hope you're making money off those paintings, because that is true talent right there.

                            Once again, thanks guys.

                            T Kite- Yes, I do. After I put enough away that I don't have to pay income tax on my painting money, the rest keeps me in watches and whiskey and in good years pays for vacations.
