Pedal Car Blues

Pedal Car Blues
acrylic on shaped panel
18 x 28 inches
Jim Sweazy, 1993
I saw this little car at a farm auction in Arkansas, and felt it was trying to look big and important, like the other cars and equipment up for sale. Got around to painting this while I had the blues, due to house-husband duties, raising my two daughters in Tucson, Arizona. This shaped painting looks exactly like an un-restored pedal car, floating on the wall. Too bad the front axle, wheels and steering wheel were all missing.
