Chrome reflections

Acrylic 16 x 20 on canvas panel - 16 h. Again I wonder whether all this effort is worth it.

Re: Chrome reflections

It's worth it if 1) You enjoyed doing it, or 2) You enjoy looking at it, or, 3) Somebody loves it and buys it. Best of all, all three!

Re: Chrome reflections

That's really sweet, Jim. Really like the way the reflections of the viewer repeat with different shapes on each bit of chrome.

Re: Chrome reflections

It's worth it! Unless you hate doing it.

What are we seeing in the reflection? lol I see a pink bird with a black head wearing white pants, and a very long leg stretched back.

Re: Chrome reflections

I like it!
The reflections are cool and the twisted shapes give it a very "modern" look.
Mix that with the "old" car and it's fantastic.

Re: Chrome reflections

Super cool painting!
Dianna's comments: old-school car with a modern art look is what I was thinking too.
