Gun Paintings

Colt 1911.
Acrylic on pine
11.5"w x 8"h
Semi-automatic handgun. Originating in the late 1890s and designed by John M. Browning, it was the standard-issue side arm for the United States armed forces from 1911 to 1985. Still in use by some U.S. forces.
$ 900.

$900 for a painting that looks like a screenprint? Hell, just spend your nine Franklins on a M1911 mixmaster and be done with it......

More of Chris Crite's paintings here.

Thanks Breda.

The sad part is the pistol isn't even cocked and locked! JMB is probably rolling in his grave.
