Reflections of America Series: Volume 9 – Quincy Market

February 3rd, 2011 by Stu

Acrylic on canvas – 33” x 24”

Another amazing installation in photorealist Bob Petillo’s Reflections of America Series. For those of you just joining us, Bob shoots cool cars, paints them and mimics reality to a degree that is difficult for the human mind to comprehend. Yes, you are looking at a painting, not a photograph. This time around, Bob visited Boston to capture a reflection of Colonial America by way of this beautiful 57’ Crown Victoria. Set in Boston’s Quincy Market, the chrome sparkles with reflections of a horse and carriage.

Bob comments, “Courageously wearing my New York Yankees hat, knowing I was too fast for any Red Sox fan to catch me, I photographed this pristine classic and got the hell out of there. In this painting, the Sox logo is in the reflection somewhere on the back of the horse. Seriously though, I think I captured the flavour of the moment in this setting of America’s historical past.”

Visit Bob’s web site to see the whole “Reflections of America” series.  High quality reproductions are available for purchase.
