1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia
This vehicle called out to me through the marvelous chrome reflections. The glorious abstract images visible in the bumper and grill offered a challenge that I couldn’t refuse. My favorite part of this painting is the bottom right bumper. So many wonderful colors and shapes. Many of those shapes are from my imagination and I feel that I put part of myself onto canvas. Although this piece was particularly difficult in a few areas, I had a blast tackling the job.
