This is a study of colors of some random pieces. A close look to show it is a painting rather that a photo.
I hope your Sunday is going well.
WOW! Just WOW! another fantastic painting. At first I thought I was looking at a magazine photo.
Most of us have wonderful parts around and don't take time to look closely at them. There is some magic hiding there.
Wow that's awesome I love it
Fabulous! What do you do with all your paintings?
Thanks Ben and Jason. Our walls are covered with them. This is my favorite place to show them. I have been featured in the VMCCA Bulb Horn magazine each issue since 2014 and a few newsletters. The Vintage Ford magazine has expressed interest and a painting was used on the cover a couple issues ago.
It's really just a good hobby for the Winter months when I don't work on cars.
To echo.....WOW. Always enjoy your artistic endeavors be they T or canvas. Thank you
I can't even imagine the talent you have to do these paintings. Like Denny said above, I always think I'm looking at a magazine cover or photo when I see your paintings (it was that way with the VF cover). Your "painted" spark plugs even have better threads than my real ones!
Thank you again for posting these. I really enjoy them.
What? You just sit and paint the treasures as you see them? What talent Richard!!! If you get your walls covered with them, I have space on my walls. Keep them coming! Im pretty good at painting a wall to hang them on but thats the end of my talent.
Incredible. I'd love to have that on my wall.
Well I did some painting this winter too!
This is my series of paintings
The first one is called "Polar Bear in a Snowstorm" The second "Igloo in a Snowstorm" and the third is Snowman in a Snowstorm"
My second series is called
"Twelve O'clock Midnight" second one is "Dark Night" and the third is called "Oh Crap my Flashlight Batteries are Dead"
Amazing job! The details are incredible!
When your walls are full and Dallas runs out of room, add me to the list next!
Your posts always help me look forward to the next season. In the winter I look forward to warmer weather so I can enjoy your work on your '14. In the summer I look forward to the arrival of winter so I can enjoy your artwork!
Thank you for sharing with us.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful art work with us Richard.
It's good to hear that. Since I only paint car related themes it's nice to find car guys to look at it. The photos that show up here on the forum are very inspiring.
Dennis can paint three at a time. I can only manage one at a time. Perhaps I can someday be a two-timer.
My best to all of you.
That's a wonderful painting, Rich. Thank you for painting it and sharing it with us here.
Wow. -Of course, a painting should look like a painting, but this one portrays the feel and dust of reality even better than a photo! -I love it!
I continue to be on awe of your talents.
When you run out of wall space for your work, I will be happy to display your work on my walls.
: ^ )
I think you have too much talent!
Shoot, I'm left wondering what's behind the Seal Fast can... :-)
You're an inspiration
IF some of us could get around the convention that said we can't...
Duey, behind the Seal Fast can is an oak block used to weight down the plywood boards that the items sit on. The photos show my elaborate studio equipped with bench grinder and lathe. Also the cardboard box to elevate the "Still Life" and the sanding disk to make the rubber cement can taller.
Richard, your artistic talent is amazing and the best part is you paint car stuff! It would be great to display a piece of your art work in the Model T museum for all to see in person (just thinking out-loud)! I wish I had your talent, keep them coming!
Richard, What an incredible eye for detail! I love your work.
I agree with your statement Bob R. along with probably 100's of other's, "your artwork should be displayed in our Museum" at least several paintings !!! Richard Eagle is definitely a gifted person and envied by many.
Richard please give this idea some serious consideration, several permanent pieces of art displayed would be appreciated by many.
Nice painting as always, Richard. Thanks for sharing.
This thread is a refreshing contrast to the Monday morning fuelvapor nonsence.
G.R. there is a painting at the Museum as we speak.
In a post regarding Bruce McCalley on Feb 17, 2012, John Semprez suggested "Maybe Rich Eagle would consider creating one of his masterpieces to commemorate Bruce's contribution to the club....."
In that spirit I did put this one together.
Now the Library is a reality the painting has been shipped. Susan and I talk about other possibilities.
Thanks for bringing this idea up.

My apologies to Bob Richmon and G.R. Cheshire.
It was Bob who suggested the Museum display not G. R. I can only blame the fuelvapor for my mistake.
Sorry and Thank you.
Richard, amazing, simply amazing. You are blessed with a wonderful talent.
Love your amazing art work!
Well by gum. The oak block/sanding drum trick! :-)
Thank you for the reveal.
It's all there. IF we look for it.
Fantastic Richard, I can't wait to see it in person this spring when I visit the museum. Your generosity is much appreciated by everyone. THANK YOU!
I am very pleased to share these things. The Museum and many great aspects of the hobby are fueled by the generosity of volunteers. Old car folks have been very good to me for 55 years and this is a way I can give a little bit back in that spirit.
