Think Small No. 2

Think Small No. 2   |   24 x 36   |   Oil on panel

My first quarantine painting. It's the same bug I painted back about a year ago, after I came across it in a Whole Foods parking lot. Like I said then, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for this car, having owned two in my life. I was having a bit of trouble getting a good photo of this painting because the color was wreaking havoc with the white balance settings of both my cameras. This version is really close.  

I'm indulging myself with my next painting. Aviation played a pretty big part of my earlier life as a fan, a pilot, a skydiver and an aircraft mechanic, so I've picked a P-40 Warhawk. It's an image I've had stored for a while and I figured at this moment with all its uncertainty, it would be nice to do something that reminded me of that more adventurous time.
