This is a 24x18 acrylic on canvas painting of my grandfathers 31 Ford. Since his passing years ago the car has sat in a garage and started to rust away. This painting is a thoughtful look back at what was and a hope of what will be again someday.

Such a beautiful old car.    Your painting is a lovely homage. I do hope you can restore it one day.

Beautiful painting. I like how you put the shadows and lights on the car. Acrylics are harder than watercolor, you did a great job.

Thanks for the comment. I personally find watercolor way harder than acrylics. But since Ive always painted in acrylics its all i know. I will have to start trying more mediums.

Hey, I swear I just saw your grand dad's old car riding along side me on the parkway. No kiddin'!! Looked just like it. But the one I saw had some sort of a giant valise or luggage bag on the back of it. Really neat car like yours. Take care of her!!!

Ooops sorry, thought I had replied to this once before but I see I hadn't; I had thought I had said that I love your painting ...which in any case ... I DO!
