Ol' Blue


Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 10"x10" SOLD

Every time I go to a car show or cruise night, I take a slew of photos in hopes of painting them. Usually only a few turn out worthy of a painting. I felt this one was one of those. I have another that I hope to complete this week.

absolutely stunning Mike! not only is it painted with your wonderful brushwork but you've captured something of it's heyday too!

Ol'Blue has a wonderful foggy feeling. I love the combination of soft and hard edges and how you used the moody colors.

Not a fan of car art, but this just proves the point that any object can be beautiful if painted well! I feel almost inspired enough to paint something myself...almost.

I've noticed that you paint food for awhile, then you switch to another topic, then back to food again. I do the same thing with my photography... I mostly photograph nature, but I switch to different topics sometimes for a needed change of pace.

Ol' Blue looks great

Wonderful balance of positive and negative space to create nostalgic atmospherics.

I love that deep, vintage blue, Mkie!

Nice composition too. That headlight just speaks to me!
