Now I remember riding in a black something, like in 1949 or so. It had some kind of tar paper or something on the roof and really made a mess of your fingernails. Of course I know we probably shouldn't have scraped the roofs but being a young girl it was just to tempting. The back seats were giant and had so much room. I remember riding in a back seat and going up a hill and looking out the front window thinking oh no, where is the road ? I was thinking we are going to fall off the face of the earth, guess like Christopher Columbus felt. Funny thinking about that now, we were just on top of a hill and I couldn't see the road from my birds eye view.
So how is this story tying in with my painting ? Well after you look at it, guess.
When I was looking at the painting, of course it has a Ford in the background. This is on my web site and my side bar here but just had to tell you about it. This little sweetie lives in Orange County California. You just want to give her a big hug.
It is funny how something will trigger your memory?
This was done in Corel's Painter, it is a digital program and a 21st century painting media. I do really like it, you can add your own colors and just paint to your heart's desire. Just like in traditional painting you may use your own colors, strokes, ideas and inspiration. Now I have said before I don't use a filter to do these just what comes out from my mind to my fingers. I mainly did this painting in pastels. I thought you might like to see the before and after of this painting.
I am still doing traditional painting and just combining all that I have learned new with what I know of traditional methods. Just a fun adventure.
There you go my Ford and Pink story. Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world. I have a fun surprise in the works for you. Also a combination of what is going on out there in the art world. See you later and hugs.
