acrylic on shaped panel
34 x 48 inches
Jim Sweazy, 2001
According to the sign lettered on the door, this old Chevrolet was used to haul people to the White River near Mountain Home, Arkansas for "Float Trips". I found it rusting away on someone's back forty, near Whiteville. Might still be there.
This is a large panel, with a nice interplay of shadow and light enhanced by the openings in the panel. These openings match where glass is missing, and one spot under the hood open to the sky. The wall behind the painting can be seen through these spaces.
