Smashed Cars – 12″x16″ acrylic on canvas

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.

Belchertown Art Week

I had a great day displaying my work for Belchertow Art Week at the Belchertown United Church of Christ. It was wonderful to meet and talk to so many people about painting, art, the town, and life.
