It is amazing what you can find to paint just walking around the block. I have passed this car many times and knew one day I would paint it. I immediately liked the rusty roof. I think an artist like (William Wray) would have done a much better job with the subject. His gritty urban landscapes are a great example of capturing beauty in the common places and back alleys we often overlook. Still, I had a lot of fun with it .
The guy who owns and still drives this old car came out to talk with me. He said he has had this car since he was in high school. (about 30 years ago is my guess) The newer red van in the front....it doesn't run right now, needs work.
