This 1911 Cadillac Model "Thirty" Limousine is one I have been painting for the last few weeks. It is another acrylic on black canvas.

The second (photo) is of a Mitchell about the same year. I discovered it's elegance in the Dudley Garage in Virginia City, Mt in the '70s. Old cars in dark building always memorized me but the Limousines and town cars have a special feeling. If they could only talk.

Hey Rich, that black canvas trick gives great results ! I like it, super depth in that dark garage setting !!
When in trouble, do not fear, blame the second engineer ! 8-)

Amazing! I had to zoom in on the picture to be sure it was a painting.
The old forums are a gold mine of information.

Photos of the whole painting often make them look better. However the brush strokes and texture of the canvas is missed.

Thanks for the comments.

Rich, your work is AMAZING!

The little squirrel one cracked me up. I would like to see the same painting, but with a Brush and it's 1 cylinder engine. The squirrel would be almost as powerful as the engine he is sitting on. And the Brush has a convenient "nut-cup" cylinder head plug, 6" in diameter, that is perfect for squirrels to display their collections. (4 different nut piles, one of each kind)
Not only would the squirrel have a handy place to keep his nuts, but he also would have no trouble keeping up with the car, either!

This painting was inspired by some Glidden Tour photos we were shown when we planned the tour a couple years ago.

Your paintings are just fabulous. I could look at them all day.

I did try to look at them all day once but Patty got mad at me for not mowing the yard! :o
