Zippo lighter surreal painting

"Lighter Noir" 6x6 inches, acrylic on Everlast canvas panel

This one is from the Daily Paintworks Challenge. This week's challenge was to paint a Zippo lighter (photo provided) using only 3 colors: burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, and titanium white. When I first saw the photo I thought I saw a little face in the top part where the flame comes up, so I painted it in there.

So cute--I saw that face on mine too but I didn't add the eyes and all like you did. So clever!
