Antique Car Show
I went to an antique car show Saturday at Koreshan State Historic Site in Estero, FL. I’ve painted there before (see earlier blog) and thought it would be fun to try painting some cars while showing some of my other work. I set up my easel and a few of my paintings across from a Model T that looked like a good subject. The owner was wearing a period duster, so naturally I included him in the painting, too. It was tricky trying to paint the car with so many people milling around in my line of sight. The owner liked my painting, and asked for a price, but I guess it was too steep. No worries, though, as one of the park rangers bought it a while later. Then another car owner paid me to paint his Cadillac from a photo I took, and a third owner said he will send me pictures to paint his award-winning Ford Fairlane, too. I’m adding car shows to my list of places to sell paintings!
