JAN'S THUNDERBIRD

I did this painting as a commission for a friend who just bought this 2004 Ford Thunderbird. I took a lot of pictures for reference, but settled on this front-on composition because it best expressed the car's personality. Like the talking animated cars in the Chevron TV ads, this Thunderbird looks like it is smiling and wearing eye shadow. Perfect for the owner!
