Cars are one subject I like to paint a lot - and oh can they be tedious!  I begin painting cars in college, inspired by all the rusty old classic cars along the road on my commute back and forth to school.  The body lines and forms have such character - timeless!  And they are sitting there, hiding in tall grass, vines and weeds, with a rainbow of rust and paint hues peeking through.  Cars speak to people and play such an important and sentimental role in peoples lives, - I really love to capture that for someone - a favorite car or a favorite time or memory.
