Marine Weirdos #10

This is one of those pieces that evolve without me ever really knowing the story.  I start with some hot rod reference photos and a blank panel,  then something happens,  and I end up with a painting and a bunch of questions.

What's the intrepid explorer guy doing in the deep with a T-bodied Ford?  Are those mers good or evil? Does that toolbox contain sandwiches?  Just what deep recesses of my mind-brain are generating ideas like this?  This is one of those rare times I don't have it all figured out.

I wonder if Leonardo ever looked in his sketchbook and thought, "Where did THAT idea come from?"

Painted in oil on an 8x10 panel.  Available for purchase here.
