    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thanks Gary. I am usually not real pleased with most of my paintings, but I kinda like the way this one came out. When I was 17 my dad bought me a 59 T-bird (black) that was in "showroom" condition (paid $600. for it). Sure wish I had that car today !!!

    The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air is an icon and one of my favorite cars of all time. If I didn't own a 1960 Corvette, I'd probably have one of these...

    You did a masterful recreation of an American classic... Fantastic painting that would right at home on as a wall print....

    I agree with all the comments; the colors work especially well and you got just enough of the car in there to identify that classic.

    Sounds like most of have an automotive "one that got away" or two in our pasts .

    Just got started on a composition in the same vein myself.

    Very good one! It looks like we got into the car painting period here and this artpiece fits it perfectly and delightfully!

    I'm betting it would sell as a wall print to gear heads and auto buffs... It's a beautiful painting....
