daily painting | martinez buick

OK this one is really cracking me up. I was roaming around Martinez, CA neighborhoods with my sketchbook yesterday, filling time until visiting hours at Hope House, a wonderful & unique kind of care facility for the mentally ill who don’t need a hospital but do need full time care for a few weeks (my son is there). This man was getting an old Buick (1940-something) ready to be transported on an auto trailer so I snapped his photo and painted from it today. It was a gorgeous car. Even older than me. And a hoot to paint. Gleaming black cars are a challenge.
