Classic Oldie


"Classic Car"
8x8 oil on Pintura panel
There's a little garage near my studio, where some 'car guys'  restore classic cars. I've been driving by it for years and have always wanted to paint this beautiful peridot green car. Now that I'm posting, I realize that I should know what kind of car it is. But, I'll have to tell you next time.

Just marveling at the use of color in this gorgeous painting, Mary! Bravo! I don't know the type of vehicle either! LoL

Wow! What a treasure your blog is. This early morning I made my way back through to your first post and found along the way so many delights and connections: your splendid use of color, your ability to paint such a variety of subjects, Corita Kent, yoga, Crane Beach, pelicans, painting from dreams, Nizzy, red wooden rocking horse, Edward Hopper's home, Gung Hay Fa Toy, cloisonné elephant.

If you'd like to see my 40-year retrospective, it begins here with a drawing I made when I was in high school in 1966:

I've done relatively little art work on paper since I began blogging in December of 2006 but as I begin my 66th year, I have been moved to make mandalas using watercolor pencil on paper.

Thanks so much for inspiring me with your vibrant paintings which speak the language of the heart to me!

What a beauty! Your painting, as well as the car. I simply love your color palettes! Another great work from a very fine artist!

A 1940's Packard, maybe?

How do I love this? Let me count the ways... the medley of greens, the slam dunk composition, the fresh subject matter.....
