Robin's Egg Blue Caddy 073 SOLD

This is a cell phone image of the painting I just finished, I wanted to get it up on the blog before I could get it out for a picture in the sunlight in case I get hit by a car tomorrow. I really feel like I am on to something at this point and that all of the hard work, expense, blood, sweat, tears and tantrums have paid off. I have plans for doing some large scale paintings that break my genre, but these car paintings keep me up at night and coming back to the easel every day.

I hoped this would be the last piece of the week because it is so big, but I just want to do more, more, more... We stopped at a body shop in Carrollton a few weeks ago on our way back home from Birmingham because they had a fully renovated '76 Landcruiser. Little did I know that they had this little gem back there. I love old Caddys, especially ones with fins. What a great time in American auto design. If they could design cars like that that really hit it home like that, they wouldn't be where they are now. I got at least 2 more shots of this car I will be painting in the near future.


  1. Love, love, love the oxidation on the truck!
    This painting has so much movement and energy.

    Checked out you website by the way...awesome!
