Inspired by Vintage

 Much of my art is inspired by vintage vehicles, classic cars, old trucks, tractors, etc, this week I took it a bit further.

First I made a painting based on a vintage photograph, this is one of my rare paintings that has the actual human element in it, featuring a stylishly appareled woman getting into a large antique luxury touring car.

Second I made a painting based on a photo of a rusty vintage sign selling Beeline Gasoline that I found at a swap meet, "Premium Gasoline For Less". My goal wasn't to replicate the sign exactly, but rather be inspired by the condition of that old sign.
