I couldn't lose with this old car. I found it in St. Augustine last week in the same spot I had found another old one I painted. As with the faces, the "eyes" make it - don't you think?

On another note, I have a request I am a little embarrassed to make. I had all my workshops written down on paper calendars because they were much easier to see at a glance than on my computer. Unfortunately my calendars were lost in the fire. I think I have remembered all the ones I didn't have listed already on my blog, but if I have a workshop scheduled with you in 2012 or 2013, please email me. Thank you!!

Hi Carol,
I love how much character you always put in your paintings.
Somehow I don't see the European workshop in the list Carol.. ;)

Carol, the palette you used for this is wonderful. I love the interplay of the warms and cools. Great light!

Carol, Very good composition. Your paint application makes it look like it is moving, could be a gangster car chase of the 1920. I like.

Love the old car, Carole. I can almost hear the putter of its engine. You're right about the eyes/headlights. We always look for eyes in any portrait.

delightful! what a great painting - it looks like a car in an old photograph of my grandfather by his first car, circa early 1900's.
