Painting Ties

There was a pile of ties destined for a donation bin and I've decided to paint them before sending them on to their next life.  As I was hanging them up, I was thinking that I must have seen a painting of ties, couldn't place it at first.  A Google search for Thiebaud and ties came up with his 1969 painting Row of Ties.  He painted ties hanging on a rod and the 60s wide ties with swirling patterns were definitely more vivid than the drab 90s ties my husband was taking out of circulation.  I'm a bit sorry that I looked up the Thiebaud ties, but I plan on painting these and making the image my own.  Here's the start in the studio.
