Taking a page out of birdhs book (with permission...) :)
I believe this was an Edsel Station wagon with the out side air conditioner.

16 X 20
Oil on gallery wrap canvas.

C&C welcome. I'm new to abstracts, so any help is helpful.

OH! This is much better than I have been doing.

I like the mark making and fresh colors.
just enuf of the body trim for car buffs to ID it

did you crop it?
it seems to have lost all but a hint of the AC
(and I haven't seen one of those in years)

I thought at first you had turned it into a swimming pool

Only suggestion might be to tone down the windshield framimng and roof pillars.
They seem much brighter than the chrome strip.
the eye seems to be drawn the dogleg area because it is soooo white.

You went so far forward with this painting now I may have to borrow it from you!!!!:lol:

Thanx for sharing this with us

I did crop it. I'll get another pic later and post it. It'll show the old AC at the top.

Thanks, for the comments. I am going to do my car next.

This is fun, artists ping ponging ideas back and forth!

Vasili, when I first was looking at the windows I was thinking the blue reminded me of an aquarium with lots of life in it a bit surreal and I like it. It is kinda fun to juxtaposition the realism of the auto body lines with the fluidity of life in an aqua-dynamic environment.

One of the things that makes this site invalueable. :D

Vasili, I love it. Greg's right, it's identifiable as a vehicle. Beautiful job- striking colors.
