Spider Doing Pushups-Hand

Close ups

Oil on 6x6 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's DPW's The Hand Challenge posted by Shelley Ross.
She said, "The challenge this week is to paint one or both of your hands in a gesture - the Peace sign, Thumbs up, Hitching a ride, A-OK, or whatever hand pose moves you."

This is the "spider doing pushups on a mirror" which is ordinarily done against the opposing hand.
Just for kicks I photographed my hand doing pushups on a mirror. Whew!...Had to take a beer break after 25 reps....Hmmm...maybe I've been painting too long without working in some exercise? :lol:

  1. So great Dean! Such wonderful kind and talented hands those are.

  2. Dean, Love love love it.I only wish mine would have turned out as nice. It didn't. What a challenge for you to do it against the reflection. You really nailed this challenge.

  3. Les mains du génie, de l'artiste mises en scène et pour un brillant spectacle...
    Belle capture et un beau jeu de couleurs...
    Gros bisous

  5. SO well done Dean. Great reflection. Impressive piece !

  6. Gosh, Dean. I can't say it any better than these previous comments. Excellent work!

  7. This is great! Maybe you should be doing 25 every hour!

  8. Hands are difficult, and you did a fantastic piece! I love the reflection. Great color, composition...everything!

  9. Very innovative thought and concept, one of the best I have seen on this challenge!

  10. I'll take a beer break with you and tip my mug to a job well done. Aren't hands fun?!
