Vintage KitchenAid Mixer - Painting

Wouldn't you just love to have one of these?  The real thing, I mean?

12x9 Oil on Canvas
 
I saw one of 'em in an antique store a year or so ago.  It was in great condition and was only $69.  The ticket read "works".  I walked away without it.  I've been kicking myself down the road ever since...





Here's my painted version.  It's 12x9 on canvas board, painted in oil. I'll be adding it to my Etsy store...

  1. Love this painting. I have a 1954 Kitchenaid that I got for 8 dollars. Works like a champ.

  2. Lindy, I love this painting and I love that mixer!! Those vintage KitchenAids had such great and strong motors in them. I have a KitchenAid today but it isn't as powerful as the old ones!

  3. Oh I love it!!! You just can't beat those older KitchenAids. Lost mine years ago in a move...was devastated and never replaced it. Someday!!!!

  4. Wonderful painting. My mom had one very similar (no juicer) when I was growing up. It was so great having two beaters--that way my sister and I always got one to lick! :)

  6. Yes, I want one of these. I saw a turquoise sunbeam that worked with all its parts once in an antique store for $50. But at the time...I didn't have the $50 and I was on vacation....no way to get the $50...so I had to let it pass. They have them on Ebay all the time though.

    My Mom has a white one that was her Grandmothers that she says I can have....I just haven't gone and got it. I figure it's just another thing to clutter my counters..so I've resisted.

    Love the painting.

  7. Lindy- I love y9ur painting. My Mom had a white one that she used all the time...she had the attachment too, but I don't ever remember seeing it on the mixer. I think it was a juicer? Diana

  12. My mum had a Sunbeam mixer with a juicer attachment just like that (in New Zealand). For a treat occasionally we would have fresh grapefruit juice before dinner!

  13. Great painting Lindy, and yes I want one!

  14. Lindy: I had to laugh because I just gave my kitchen aid stand mixer back to my Mom! I found that I missed my simple, cheap, old hand mixer, and so my stand mixer collected dust and took up valuable counter space! Now my Mom has one at both summer and winter houses :) So we're all happy! I just thought it was fitting to see this painting so soon after I gave mine up :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'll come back and visit again sometime and hope you will too!

  15. As a painting its so perfect, the shades,curves shadows all little details you describe so well Lindy... you have a great talent . And about vintage kitchen aid... yes these old aids are not only very powerful but very rough and tough.. you can use them casually...

  23. This isn't a KitchenAid, it's a Sunbeam. Vintage KitchenAid mixers either say Hobart or KitchenAid on the front and have a similar appearance to the current model.
