Joyrider From Outer Space! by Varin-maeus Joyrider From Outer Space! by Varin-maeus
Why? Why do critters from the farthest reaches of reality come here just to drive recklessly in stolen vehicles?

Because Earth is the only place in the universe with 1957 Mercury ragtops.

Painted in oil on a 6x9 inch masonite panel.

Good point. I hear the cheap knockoffs they make in Alpha Centauri actually have seatbelts! Can you imagine?

There's a guy/thing on Betelgeuse 5 who makes counterfeit muscle cars with some relative of carbon fiber. Shameful.

I'm liking the brush strokes! Have fun with the new medium! I may follow you down this path soon too, Original oil paintings do seem to be more valuable to folks for some reason......

More and more, lately. I started doing small pieces in August, to get away from watercolor. I found myself liking the results, the fact that I could change things rather easily, and the relatively short time it took to finish a painting, compared to one of my watercolors. They sell much better, too, so far.

It looks great and the medium is a bit more forgiving.
