What a great painting. It must be nice to be so talented.
I could attempt to paint the floor in my house and miss!
Ah ! ... The Gentleman's Mechanic !
Denny, I second that sentiment. I honestly can't draw or paint at all. My brother is actually very good at it; none of that talent found me.
Richard, you captured the optimism of the era in that painting.
The original big nose and glasses ??
It looks alot like me but even my [formal wear bibbs] ain't that fancy! Bud.
I was very pleased when my grandson and I found this in a remote corner of the basement. I had done it 30 or 40 years ago when my style was a little different. I had never finished it because I couldn't decide how to do the oil can. Finished it today.
"I believe, Master, it may be time to upgrade to a new Ford Model K."
Outstanding, Richard! You have mastered the perspective, which is a gift and perhaps the most difficult aspect of painting.
Not to be critical, but why did you not use a Model T? Is it because no Model T owner back then could have afforded a butler? Jim Patrick
WOW that's all I have to say
When you really study the detail on Richard's painting, consider how many (actually, how few) artists with anywhere near Richard's artistic ability, actually also understand the Ackerman principle of steering!
Richard, your work, whether paint brush, wrenches or machine tools, is amazing! Please continue sharing it with us,.....harold
I'm with Harold! Thanks for sharing you artwork with us Richard!
Thanks guys. I can't think of a better place to share it.
I like it!
That looks just like real brass. Love your painting.
Love it. Can't help wishing there was companion right side picture showing another of His Lordship's horseless carriages.
