'51 Chevy

I was in Manistee last week where River Street Gallery asked me to do a demonstration. I wasn't sure on my way up what I'd paint. A couple of years ago I was there and painted the classic, old Vogue theatre. Since this time I was there on the 4th, there had been a parade earlier and this '51 Chevrolet Deluxe was parked right across the street. I couldn't resist adding a little more interesting background then where it was parked, so after I got the car roughed-in, I moved a few doors down to add the theatre.

Now that was a great demo - not only of good painting skills but also of what it sometimes takes to make an interesting picture! Bravo!
