Wooden Clothespeg

Wooden Clothespeg
Oil on linen on MDF
I've always had a fascination with clothespegs. As a child I used to pull them apart and play games with them, including fashioning them into a rather effective dartgun! The spring becomes the firing mechanism and you can fire a dart with a pin in it right across a large room. I introduced the fad to my school and had the dubious satisfaction of the headmaster banning them! Normally I was such a painfully boring and quiet Good Boy.
