A classic woody, 1952 Ford wagon. A symbol of the early surfing era. I saw this one in Santa Cruz and took a picture of it on the wharf. The background here is my own fantasy.

I like old barns, so whenever I find one I take a couple pictures and work them into a painting sooner or later. This is actually a combination of photos I took at the same farm, the cat being in one place and the barn in another. I didn't think the barn was interesting enough by itself so decided to add the cat in the foreground as the focal point. It's always a tricky thing to do because of the different lighting and perspective of each subject. I think this worked out fine.
