BONUS POST.....

Hey y'all!
So it is Saturday, and I am working like a mad man!
No. Not like Don Draper.
.....like a mad scientist.
Although, I might be saying that just because my hair is on end!
Whatever.
So here is the final painting of the one I posted last night....
to refresh your memory, this is what it looked like yesterday....

And here it is completed:


So, this 20" x 60" Acrylic on canvas is called "Free and Easy".
I was really pleased at the final look.
I like how the sexy lady turned out.
The cityscape is taken right outside the CBC building in Toronto. 
(At the time they had just started the construction on The Ritz-Carlton Hotel)
The "Living Free and Easy" poster was fun to create too! 
(and I love any opportunity to paint faux tape on the corners)
The tin toy is replica of the car James Dean made famous (Little Bastard)
A 1954 Porsche 550 Spyder 
The quote on this painting is:
"Ever notice that anybody going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a manic?" 
------George Carlin
This piece will be exhibited at Art Trax gallery in Port Credit in June, for my "Auto Fixation"!
That is it for today!
Have a  great weekend all!!
