"Vrooom" (Tin Blue Car)

""Vrooom" (4x6") Oil on Masonite.

When I posted my oil painting of the red toy car "Vintage" last month, my friend Nina sent a comment that said, "Vrooom". I said to myself, "That would have been a much cooler name for the painting". Thanks to Nina's comment it became easy to title this one.

The rusty paint-chipped patina is what originally attracted me to this subject. To me, it suggest the stories and history that lie deep in the venerable spirit of this object.
