Here's something new - I'll be doing a series of "Barn Find' paintings that will be more interactive than a standard painting. Each will have opening barn doors to reveal classic cars hidden inside. The cars are painted on a separate board that can be slid into place from the back. This way the same painting can include several different cars if a client wishes.

I'll create a few more of these between now and the 2011 car show season and market these as one-of-a-kind paintings that can be custom created for an individual. Lots of guys have multiple classic cars in their collection and this concept can afford them the opportunity to have each car featured. They can swap out one image for another for as many vehicles they wish to have created.

This particular image features my friend's 1961 Thunderbird.

FABULOUS Idea!!
Kinda reminds me of John Roof's Trees w/ 3D added fences!
Love your cars and Wood barn, excellently rendered!!
Curious, what support did you use? Hardboard?

Hi Dan:

Fab idea and execution. I think one small suggestion is to have a look at using a smaller hinge on the doors. When I made my kid's doll house, all hardware and whatnots were sized to scale. Really made the difference.

Thanks everyone!

Dances_with_oils - Great suggestion! The hinges I used were the smallest I could get from the hardware store, but some of the hinges on the site you posted are much better suited for this project - Thanks!
