Thanks again to Mark for taking a great picture. I hate ripping off pics, and I'm ready for Mark to knock on my door and say, "Uh, hey, quit ripping off my pics!"
I love the challenge of painting something as symmetrical and reflective as a car. I see lots of imperfections, but I wanted it to look like a painting still. It's more 'washy' than my other Southside pics, maybe cuz I'm running out of time! Eep!
And seems the comments are messed up, so I'll just feel your comments, good or bad, telepathically. Of course this image is on flickr and facebook, you guys might hunt me down there. I know I had plenty of well-wishings about Tessa, just not here. Dern Moveable Type 4, your cramping my virtual social life!

hey, that looks like my old car, the blue wave. well, not exactly, i think mine was even bigger and uglier. :) nice painting. i should've commissioned you for a portrait of ye olde blue wave before it died a lonely death, abandoned by the side of the road after its transmission finally stopped working and brian whitacre left it to rot. and forgot to salvage the fish-eye rearview mirrors... :)

I love this one, its so amazing to zoom in and see detail and then click out again and see how your brilliant strokes created the big picture. Well done!
