A picture can speak a thousand words just like this vintage car oil painting from HudsonGoods.com.
Believe it or not, this was one cool car back in the day. And just like any good oil painting it tells a story. At first glance this painting looks like a group of men dressed in vintage clothing standing behind a car to get their picture taken. But at closer inspection this painting tells a story. These men are standing in front of their Automobile Flat which today would be a car mechanics garage and after several years of drawing and building they have completed their first concept car. This car was not built to tour around town with the family and kids. Their intent was to build a car that would be raced by a single person, most likely a man, and it would exceed all current speed expectations. They stand proudly in front of their invention and this moment in time was captured on film and has now been transposed into oil on canvas. But no ordinary cloth canvas was used for this oil painting. Instead, this vintage car is painted in oil on a reclaimed metal canvas. Salvaged from old tin roofs, this vintage metal shows it’s age with rips, tears and even a few holes here and there. It’s vintage just like the men and their car. Hang this vintage oil painting in a commercial space or in the home. It can be viewed behind the sofa or over the bar and it will add vintage style to your room.
What’s your Kodak moment?
