Hi Todd - now you got this one really to grin in a very cranky way - again the spooky mood right out of a Steven King film - this one reminds me truely of "Christine".
A car with a face - wonderfully creepy and I can hear the sound already...

Creepy greetings,
Petra

Love this old car. It reminds me of my old truck in my photo. The character of all the rust and chipped paint give them their own personality.

Petra,
thats too funny, I didn't even notice the face..but I think you're right now that you mention it. Creepy greetings to you to.

Pat, cool truck in your photo, I'd love to paint that beautiful rust.
best to you both.
Todd

You were channeling 'Christine'.
Evil grinning grille and beady eyes!
Very noir feeling to this one.

Hi Todd, I'm just discovering your blog...This painting is great...I'm a beginner at painting and have a fascination with wanting to paint "old" stuff like this. Your work is awesome...all of it that I've seen here.
