I went almost the whole month of April without painting, and it was tough. Sometime in March my youngest son and his friend thought it would be fun to smash up a bunch of Hot Wheels cars and create stories for what happened to each car. I did this exact thing with my own cars and other toys when I was a kid. I still regret the destruction of a good amount of Transformers that I’d love to have back.
When they were finished I dumped the car carcasses in the kitchen sink and arranged them until I found a layout I liked. This is how this painting came to be.
Here is the time lapse video of the painting process.
On Monday May 6, I was at the Ludlow Country Club for the Silent No More Auction held by the Zonta Club of Quabog Valley. A framed giclee print of my painting, Truck with Insulation, sold at auction, along with a lot of other good stuff.
