Enamel Tin Mug and Mustard Pot

Oil painting of an enamel blue and white tin mug in front of an earthenware mustard pot with a cork stopper.  Both have been placed on a slab of white marble.
"Have a go, ya mug!" is a common Australian invitation to engage a would-be opponent in physical combat.  This painting is a variation on that theme (painted over two days), but instead I've had a go at a mug.  Less well known is the Australian incitement to "have a go, ya mustard!"

Oil on canvas board, 10" x 8"
