Cheers to 2013

A new year – a new start!  Here is my latest piece, which is also in the the ‘Autos’ gallery.  I first provided a sneak peek of this painting here. 


This is on a long 48″ canvas that is only 12″ tall.  I wanted to focus on the long line I love most about this vintage vehicle.  I chose to use Matisse Design Cyan for the beautiful blue color.  I only changed the depth of the color with water.  I did not want to show the entire vehicle in this work because I wanted the viewer to be drawn in by the color and the lines.  This piece may not even resemble a car to someone who doesn’t know the style of the vintage Mustang.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.  – Aristotle
