Just down the road and around the corner is a yellow Nash Metropolitan. I don’t know what year model it is.
I don’t know how long it has sat there in the yard, but it’s been there a long time.
One day a few weeks ago I drove by it on the way out and thought to myself, “I ought to try to do a painting of that.” So, as you can see, I did!
I changed the background a little and left out personal things belonging to the homeowner, but the tree and the car are as they are, just there.
I can only imagine how many people over the years have knocked on the door of the house and inquired about purchasing the old Nash only to here, “Well, it’s not for sale. I plan on fixing it up one day.”
Yeah, right. Heard THAT before.
So, after doing this painting, I’m considering doing more of other kinds of automobiles.
Any “not for sale” stories you’d like to share?
