Love Hate '59 Corvette

4"x6" oil on raymar panel. Yes, the title is lame, but there is meaning behind it. The "Love" part is easy—I mean come on!—it's a freakin' 1959 Corvette, a veritable god (or goddess) of the road. The "Hate" part is due to the fact that this is the only car The Spousal Unit would, flat out, leave me for. Seriously, if this car came up and hit on her, she would be gone in a second. This particularly beautiful Corvette was showing itself off in the Village of Arroyo Grande and The SU was just drooling over it. The only thing that would have made it worse is if the thing was red. If it was red, it would not need to hit on her, she would be hitting on it.    Enough husbandly grumbling. Manly rivalry or not, the car posed a painting challenge, so it was hard to resist painting it.    Musical note: I think Shirley Horn became even better with age.
