I have a thing for old cars. Anything say, pre 1990. I like cars that are made out of steel and glass and float down the road, and when you are behind the wheel you know that you are in charge of a big, powerful machine.
My affinity for classics may have something to do with the car that I grew up with- a baby blue 1973 Buick Electra with power windows and white vinyl interior- aka The Queen Mary.

|These are painted in oil on small (4"x 6") panels that were well gessoed and super smooth. I really liked the idea of squeezing such a grand car onto a small surface- for me it evokes the feeling that I get from these cars anyway- like they are too big to be contained. Plus, all that chrome deserves some attention, wouldn't you agree?|
