Recycled Can

This is a typical thing to see in just about anyone's shed, barn or other outbuilding in rural America. What attracts my attention is the beauty of the label design itself and the effects of age and slanting light. Found objects like these also call to mind the owner. How, when and by whom was this can and its contents put to use?

This image uses a lot of artistic license. I made up the background by looking at some other shelves. The label on the can was found online and wrapped around a coffee can.

Go here to buy the painting.
