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
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.
