Red Beetle

6 x 6 oil on panel

I don't normally paint this subject matter. But I couldn't resist this one. Saw this pretty VW in Door Co last year.

  1. Cathy, I am viewing this with the brightness of my screen turned way down, since it is very early morning, but even under those conditions, this one stands out as a Wow! I look forward to looking again later...

    1. Thank you Meredith! The red always pops doesn't it? I'm glad to hear it held up even on a dimmed monitor!

  4. Can not resist a bug. Great composition and brushwork. Great light. Loved catching up with your work. So many nice pieces. Interesting hearing your show experience. I am thinking of trying to get into a Chicago show. My son got a new job there.
    Keep up the beautiful work.
