Knight's 49


Recently while scouting out a Painting location I spotted this 49 Chevy and had to paint it. The only problem was the best location to stand was either on someone's lawn or in the street. So I asked the owners of the lawn if they would mind if I set up my easel and they were great about the whole thing and to my surprise when I was close to done they inquired about purchasing this piece. So when they invited me in to discuss the particulars I was shocked to see paintings by some of my absolute favorite Maine artists on the walls. Besides the obvious positive of being able to sell my work I am still blown away with to be part of this collection and all by chance...

I won't say who the collectors are or the location but I will say that in there collection was Connie Hayes, Tollef Runquist and my main man Colin Page. I would say that's good Taste.

sounds like an ideal situation... painting sold hot off the easel with no trudging around;) it is a beautiful painting and they are lucky to have it.

Great brushwork that communicates a wealth of detail and what a stroke of luck.

I love it. It's cool when you find collectors with common taste. Win win!

Excellent, Dan! Very well done. Great story behind it too. Wish I can work up the nerve to ask strangers if I can paint on their property...fear of rejection and/or fear of them seeing a failed attempt!

Hey Rahina, thank you, you are too kind!

Hey Mick, thank you and yeah I still can't get over all the variables that brought me to that spot..? Life has a way sometimes.

Thanks Randy! I agree.

hey Matt! Thank you very much! Your work is way too good, I wouldn't worry.
Just for a little inspiration read the story of Monet and the Train station painting.
