I love old classic cars.  This one has those big fenders over the wheels.  I remember when I was a little kid my dad had a car with fenders like this.  I used to climb under the fender and lay on top of the tire just for fun.  One day I was doing that when I heard the car door shut and the ignition started.  I hopped off fast.  My mother never knew how close she came to squishing me on the driveway.

This painting is done with linear perspective, the front is wider than the back would be.  I have painted shapes of colors on the car, from deep red, to pink, to orange.  Also I have painted an old-time gas station to give atmosphere.

Hey Tom, remember me? Just found out from Rakell that you have your own web site. Awesome. How long have you been doing this? I really thought you would end up being such speculator in Math. I know you were lots of help for me. ha ha . Anyway hope you are going to be able to attend the reunion. later, Shawna Wimmer
