Austin

The Austin reappears, is recycled as are a few of my favourite characters.

I love the dirty grays! I've come to appreciate color usage over the past couple of years (especially what some artists on blogs have done with/to it), but I still have a love for monochrome and limited palettes. The bottom one here looks timeless, like looking at photos of old, old relatives and seeing the family resemblance.

Ooooh, I really like the top one. It almost looks like a ghost. Like a quickly fading memory of the past. Very good.

Thanks Grimm, I did the sepia version in 1980 or thereabouts, now I can just hit the sepia button and instant "old". Computers, gotta love'em but they're evil...

I really like the ones with the white as a background. It's just the car telling it's story.

Have fun at work!!!

I like this gray. It's a mystical painting.

Cara Dawn Romero said...

Hi Ron - Love the top one. Hope your going on a fun trip and not a work trip. Hurry back either way.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks N.N., I did a series of them in 1977 before I could successfully handle background work.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Madison, I'm baack.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K., its the first time the blue one has been up, its a character that has appeared a few times in a bigger picture. I did seven or eight of these in 1977 before I could do much with backgrounds.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michele, thats what I think it was to me.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Cara, it was a work trip but I survived. We poured a 6,000 square foot concrete floor and I finished it with my big power trowel. Which is similar to riding a Harley, believe it or don't. It took a day of driving to get to the job and back-eight hours (a work day).

I really like both of these. My feelings are similar to Doug's.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Tom, they are favourites of mine.
