Suzie Sidecar

I had a conversation with a friend I've know from high school who is also an accomplished artist. The subject matter was about what we liked to paint. I told her that I had enjoyed painting the vintage Vespas a couple years ago and she urged me to do more.

The previous paintings were plainly named "Blue Vespa, Green Vespa, etc" . I have decided to give this new one a more personalized name because Hellenne said my paintings reminded her of the animated vehicles in Pixar's Cars movie. Here you go Hellenne! Check out Hellene's blog HERE. I love how her Japanese heritage really shine through her work.

Good use of the compliments. The colors look to be moving, in a state of motion.

This is terrific, Sheila. It looks almost like a painted woodcut. Did you use a black ground?
