Smokin', 6x6" oil, ©Diane Mannion


Went to an antique car show recently and snapped a ton of photos... this was actually a gorgeous red Caddy, don't ask me the year.  But it looked boring simply parked on the side of the road.  

Wanted to add mystery and ambiance of the historical period when this Caddy owned the road.  The painting's story "happened" while I worked.  Thought of a dog running along side, houselights in background, headlight beam was a last minute idea... of course they would have been shining.  
Driver would be wearing a classy hat and smoking.  Is this a painting or an illustration?  Doesn't  matter, I'm happy with it.

This is #13 of the 30/30 Challenge!

Contact VAC Punta Gorda and Ringling Englewood for my teaching schedule. Classes start this week.
