This is not a recently produced painting, but it is one of my favorites. I did it a couple of years ago for a show at Twinhouse gallery. It wasn't particularly well received, and has since been "dissed" by all of my galleries. None will show it. "Can't sell it", is the universal reply. This was the same response my second auto painting, "Chevrolet" received. At first I believed this subject could be a major direction for my work. This obviously turned out not to be the case. I'm sure the gallery directors, and owners, know their clientele, but it remains a source of disappointment for me. I believe these two paintings represent some of my best work to date. Anyway, while I'm working on a new group of still life paintings, I thought I'd bring some attention back to this piece, of which I'm very proud. In a day or two, I'll begin to post the five new paintings I'm currently working on.
