Cool Dude

This painting was based on a photo of my brother Mike in his early days. He is 63 today (old!) He had a black Bel-air in his late teens-early 20's that I envied him for. The speedometer didn't work but he knew when he hit 60 mph because all the windows would start to rattle. I always remember him smelling of cigarettes and jujubes. The red car(local) is standing in for the Bel-air. Happy Birthday Bro!

Love this painting...reminds me of New Mexico somehow. And thanks for your comments on my blog.
