I recently went to car show with him in Vinton, Iowa. I should clarify and say that it was actually a car drag. I rode with my boyfriend in his "Green Machine" and it was like a parade of sorts through the small Iowa town. A new experience for me and no I did not get the "Miss America Wave" down during the drive. Though, I did manage a few waves as we drove along.
Afterwards I went through my photos and I rather got inspired to attempt to paint a car. I've done one before but it was a background to a duo of my nephews in front of a car. But this car really kind of drew me to it. But I always was partial to the color blue.
This is the first time that I have just focused on the car. So here is a old blue and white Buick that I'm guessing is a 1955 or 1956. I still have a lot to learn about cars and my new boyfriend is very much into them. He's a MOPAR man, and I can rightly say that I'm not exactly sure what that means. Let's hope I have a fairly good learning curve at my age. LOL! But anyway, here is the attempt to do this old Buick...
