The Old Red Car

Believe it or not, I finally finished another painting. I struggled a little with this one. But I finally made it through and am now satisfied with the way it turned out. Now I just need to get it over to Fed Ex Kinkos and have it scanned in.

I really enjoy painting these old cars and trucks. They have such interesting grills and fins and taillights and insignia. New cars just don't have that kind of appeal. They may be great to drive (I love my Honda Accord) but they are boring to look at. They all look alike. But the old cars just have more character. Maybe one day I'll get tired of painting them. But not yet.

I love this, Ernie! Your paintings are wonderful. So true about old cars too. They have so much personality and character compared to the boring sameness of new cars.

Hi Ernie:)
I love your paintings!!! They are so colourful!
I haven't been reading your posts for such a long time (motherhood duties...) and now see I have some reading to do along with your lovely paintings and photographs!
What a treat:)

PS. I definitely agree with you and Shelley - old cars have personality and character. They are much more interesting to look at:)
