These are some recent paintings by Russell showing examples of photorealism.  The Zippo lighter was for a postcard art show with the theme of “technology.”  It is entitled “The Olympic Torch of Technology.”  The piece of paper was submitted to a small works show and is entitled “This is not a Piece of Paper.”  This latter painting is sort of a tribute to Rene’ Magritte’s painting ‘This is not a Pipe’, in which the famous artist has a painting of a (smoking) pipe with those words also in the painting.  Many of his paintings had this sort of ‘tongue in cheek’ style to them.   Both of these paintings are small, less than 12 inches per side.  Both paintings are framed and for sale.
