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.
