It was a beautiful and cool weekend filled with classic cars, amazing artwork and fun. I got to see the new schoolhouse that was moved to Ben Wheeler from Emory. They did an amazing job refurbishing that place! Unfortunately I forgot to take pics of it, but I did get to take full advantage of the upstart car show going on at the same time as the artisan show. I didn’t get many pictures but here are the ones I did get!
I just finished this painting last night. The man who owns this car refurbished it in a way that preserved the beautiful patina the rust left on the car. He sanded it smooth, just the way it was, so that the paint and rust were level and the he matte clear coated it. After that he pinstriped it and gave it it’s name “Ratrod.” It was love at first sight, from it’s gleaming cherry rims to it’s custom non-paint job. Coolness encapsulated on 4 wheels.
This will be on display at the Flying Fish gallery and I will also be listing it on my website and Etsy.
