'60 Chevrolet Conversion


12x16
Oil/masonite
Studio painting
Sold


Thought I would have some fun with this one! This car is a 1960 Chevrolet Wagon which was converted into a ambulance. The lights were a later addition and the inside was revamped for emergency use. The original ambulances from this time were higher in the back to accommodate equipment and people. This painting will also be at a gallery I'll be showing at starting next week and I'll post those details soon. It was painted from picture reference taken in Denver when I was home for Thanksgiving. It was asking to be painted!

I'm doing a portrait commission right now and went to Carolyn Anderson's site to get inspired. Then I thought I'd check your blog, because I remembered you have some nifty portraits posted. I was looking at "Elizabeth" and read that you had taken a workshop from her! I'll be posting my commission in a few weeks. Like to get your opinion of it. Good luck with your gallery show Mr. ambulance painter.

Hi David
Hey, thanks for checking in! I wholeheartedly recommend Carolyn's workshop if you ever get the chance. I'm hoping she comes back to San Diego this late summer of fall. Good luck on your commission David!
