Speed Paint, Space Dragon

Every time I do a paint, it looks likes it was done in the 1950's...
maybe that's OK? but not what I'm going for, oh well, I'll keep trying until I'm happy.

Quality Auto

I don't know why I am posting this, I just really like it...
It's not a great sign, I guess I just see a lot of different things in the painting. This is a sign painted on the side of an old mechanic's shop in the heart of downtown Pinckney, Michigan. I have probably passed this sign as a teenager a hundred times and never noticed it, but recently was nearby and it just grabbed me. I guess just something about the combination of colors on the wall, the blue sky and the green trees makes me feel at ease...
like I'm a kid back in the 70's, with tube socks pulled up to my knees and on my Schwinn with the banana seat and sissy bars riding by while they work on a 72' Nova listening to Journey...
