Ornamentations Vol.4 – The Skylark

November 29th, 2011 by Stu

Acrylic on canvas – 20”X16”

Another addition to the “Ornamentations” series by car nut and photorealist Bob Petillo. This time a 1954 Buick Skylark glistening in the mid day sun. Before the days of the Buick tri-shield emblems was the variation on V8 symbols such as this one. The broad chrome base created a reflecting surface for the sky and emblem. Bob says, “It’s the kind of thing that really captures the beauty or mirroring images.  It’s Nirvana for artists with OCD”
