The 1932 Ford Coup is a favorite of hot rod buffs. It's big, bold fenders and separate headlights really make a statement. This composition is a bit abstract and the viewer might not know exactly what she is seeing at first glance. Of course, I've been looking at the painting for two weeks, so it seems obvious to me. The rear view mirror and the headlight don't jump out at first so you need to find a reference point and maybe the fender is just that.
I took this picture on a cloudy day so I enhanced the reflection on the metal body of the car. I like the wood trim on the window, the dashboard instruments and the metal hardware between the fender and the body.
