Most car lovers don’t like rust. They’ll stay away from it and hope it stays away from their cars! Me? I am fascinated by it!
One day I realized that the layers, the colors, and the texture of auto oxidation are like abstract paintings. I’ve made it my goal to capture photographs of rusty cars and trucks whenever I can and then, rather than paint the entire rusted automobile, I simply narrow my view to a small area of the rusted steel and peeling paint and abstractly recreate it on canvas.
These oxidation paintings are perfect for anyone who loves abstract paintings and equally ideal for car lovers who, like me, enjoy all the nuances of auto oxidation!
