Keene Valley Car #1 (Sloth)

Keene Valley , NY must have more antique cars per square mile than Jay Leno's garage. I love discovering them as I walk through the town. Folks  garage them all winter and drive them to the market or to dinner at the Ausable Club in the summertime. They appeal to me for their color, shape , and humor. After so many beautiful landscapes painted it's fun to change it up and do a colorful old car. I plan to do a series of full frontals because they remind me of faces. It occurred to me that it might be interesting  to name them after the 7 deadly sins ,( or virtues) . We'll see.  12x12in oil
