Painting of the cobra

I know I don’t hang out in this section often anymore. Since the 33 taking up my shop time and the cobra is running steady, I’ve just been enjoying it. But I thought you guys might like to see this. My mother in law painted this for me.

The original photo


The painting I received today


She has more talent in her little finger than I will ever have.

CFranks thanked this.

No Contest...

Her paint job looks better than mine.

Regards, Rick.

I'd post a picture but I can't get to the gallery.

Driving a car like this is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.

Really love the colour. Any links to pics of your car I can see?
I’ll be painting mine a year or three from now, seems like everyone I see I like. My last to Tacoma pickups are magnetic grey metallic, very similar, so I guess I like that colour, haha.

Very talented painter. She did a wonderful job getting the reflections and the shine looking right.

That’s really the only and best pic I have since photo bucket went kaput. But it’s also the truest to how it really looks.
