acrylic painting Model T


Just finished this painting.
It reminded me of many rides
in my grandfathers Model T Ford
when i was a child.
Up the big sandhill we went ....
then backing back down because
it could not make it all the way ...
Then he would take another run at it !!! LOL
I love Dorothy Dent designs
although i do make changes sometimes.
As always your comments
are very much appreciated.

I love the vintage feel of this piece, and the fact that it tells a story.
Your painting skills are top notch, but it is the emotion that comes through.

Gorgeous painting! The old farm house in the background reminds me of my in-laws farm as the layout is very similar.

Also love the journal pages that your GD made-very creative
