Two Different Artists Paint The Same Unusual Subject: Rubber Band Balls.

Paintings of Rubber Band Balls

It may seem like an odd subject to you, but clearly not to artists Canadian Joanna Strong and Sandy Wilcox of the U.S., both of whom were separately inspired to paint a series of the same exact subject: Rubber band balls.

Painting them as a singular subject in the style of contemporary realism, Strong’s oil paintings are slightly more photo-realistic with dramatic lighting and on a black background, making the bright colors pop.

Wilcox‘s images of the same subject are also painted with oils, only in a smaller format, a little softer in execution and color and are featured on pale neutral backgrounds with soft shadows.

I have chosen to feature 14 paintings by each artist. I find both equally appealing and would love to own one of each.
