I love it. Beautiful scene and reminds me that Model Ts, to my eyes, are pretty cars.

Very nice picture. Very romantic and idealistic. It looks like a modern painting to me.

Two things are missing: ants and dogs.

Neil,

They have the aunts and dogs...That is aunt Betty with the parasol in the background and dad has the hot dogs in the basket for grilling :-)

Richard, I don't know if that car is correct, He may have not done the interior upholstery correct on the doors! :-):-):-)

Neil you're right. I can't believe there is no dog.

Denny, correct or not I'll bet he is glad they are done. &o)
The Artist achieved a nice affect on the Non-Skid tires.

Gil has it right, this has all the earmarks of a "yeoman" illustration from the mid-50s - early 60s. It's signed by "Allison" but I can find nothing on an illustrator by that name.

Not great art, and there are some things to pick at technically, though not with the car. It's a very nice piece all said and done, and the sort of thing us Model T guys can relate to and enjoy.

One thing about it has me looking at "non-skid" tires from a different angle - first glance, this painting gave me the impression the tires were diamond tread - I never noticed the similarities before.

At some point, since the age of illustration is dead and gone now these 50 years hence, items like this will have more importance in the historical time-line of the Model T.

The only artist of note currently doing justice to Model T subjects is Richard Eagle - and we can be glad he's still producing!! If others know of current good work, it would be nice to see some posted here. There's a Guild of Automotive Artists currently active, but Model T subjects don't often figure in the work they display.

Uk - correction - the outfit I was thinking of is "AFAS" the Automotive Fine Art Society. Worth a look.
