Buick Eight

Buick Eight | 5"x10" | oil on hardboard

This is something a bit different from anything else I've posted on the blog. It's a painting of the ornament that adorns the trunk of a 1953 Buick. They sure don't make 'em like this anymore. I'm not super happy with how the chrome turned out, but had fun painting it.

My Dad finished restoring the interior of this car last summer for one of his customers. Dad is an artist too, although he doesn't push paint around with a brush. He has been in the upholstery business for 50+ years and is a true master craftsman at his trade, and someone who can always find a creative solution to any project.

Inquire about purchasing (the painting, not the Buick!)
