Here is another brilliant painting from our car-loving photorealist Bob Petillo. For those of you just joining us, Bob takes photographs and brings them to life with his paint brush. So, whether you believe us or not, what you are seeing here is actually an 18” X 24” acrylic on canvas painting that Bob calls “Montana”
“Montana is one of my favorite paintings in the Reflections of America series. This one, of a black 59 Chevy, captures the reflections of the home of one of our troops overseas. Looking deep into the quarter panel of this unforgettable classic beauty, we see many American flags and banners adorning this farmhouse and waving proudly in the driving spring breezes. Mom and dad’s lawn chairs are lovingly placed by the yellow ribbon on the ol’ oak tree. This reflection of America speaks to our deepest sense of National pride.”
Thanks for sharing Bob!
