A Red Snowy VW Bug Painting

This is a new red, snowy VW bug painting.The bug image is taken from a photo of a 1959 beetle. 1959 was the year I was born. It’s 12″ x 12″, acrylic on wood panel, $375.

I dedicate it to all those who have traveled through the snow and are thankful how well a VW bug plows through! I know, I’ve been there. They are amazing in the snow.

I’ve never painted a snow scene quite like this before. The painting went through many layers and changes.

First, I had a little bit of snow in it. But it looked like I couldn’t decide if I wanted snow in it or not…and my husband, Greg, gave me some good advice. “If you’re going to put snow in your painting, REALLY put some snow into it!”  So I did. 🙂

Then it still took a while for the painting to evolve to the finished piece. I added the bits of color sprinkled through the snow which I think adds some magic.

    Thank you Clara. Seems lots of people have fond memories of a VW beetle in their life. That’s cool yours was a silver one. 🙂

    Oh….you read my mind……the VW Beetle is a classic…..noisy, cramped, had no AC but I loved it! Ours was silver and ran and ran and ran………
