I just finished this one. There's an industrial area just north of my neighborhood with train tracks, silos and big storage tanks. This abandoned Cadillac was deposited behind one of these sites. 8x10 oil on canvas panel.
A drive-in liquor store in my neighborhood that I have painted 3-4 times and probably will again. I can't resist architecture from this era. This painting is approx. 11x14 and is oil on gessoed masonite.
I am a 1973 graduate of The Memphis Academy of Arts, now known as The Memphis College of Arts. The Academy's director, Ted Rust, stopped me in a hallway while on my way to class one day, and made a suggestion that I consider changing my major from advertising design to one of the fine arts. Well, it's been thirty-odd years since that day. If you're out there Mr. Rust, I think it's time.
