I love the idea of loving NYC, but I can't deny I have had a panic attack every time I go there. I guess I am just a country girl at heart. When I was young my dad took me there and his truck broke down on bridge (full of traffic). I think I never got over that!

Good thing The Great American Road Trip is a fantasy road trip. This way I get to see the colorful fun NYC of my dreams and I don't have to be stuck on a bridge hyperventilating! Here it is, Times Square in all its colorful glory.

See you at the next stop, Dawn

Massachusetts: Fall Foliage

Next stop on The Great American Road Trip... Massachusetts in a 1970 Sting Ray Corvette!

I know I am supposed to be on a road-trip and yet I keep drawing pictures of my home state. I guess we can agree in this case the artist draws what "she" (me) knows! 

I grew up on in a house on the corner of two dirt roads in Western Massachusetts. One road went uphill quite steeply and had beautiful folliage every fall. When I saw this blue Corvette I thought it would look beautiful with orange, and the owner of the car suggested fall foliage! Perfect I think!

Next stop on The Great American Road Trip... Rhode Island in a 1960 Corvette!

I went to Newport RI to visit the Anderson Auto Museum on a day trip and got really excited about what great backgrounds Newport would provide for my art. Destiny intervened a week later because I met a new collector at the Stowe Car Show in VT. He and his wife commissioned me to draw their Corvette and said they would love to have Newport RI as a background!

Connecticut: Lighthouse Playhouse

Next stop on The Great American Road Trip... Connecticut in a 1954 Chevy Bel Air!

1964 Belair.jpg

It is entirely possible that I might change my mind next week, but right now I think the Chevy Bel Airs of the 1950's are my favorite antique cars. I photographed this 1954 at a car show and the color was a more muted mint green but I pumped it up a bit in the name of art. As usual I finished drawing the car then thought about where I should take it on my Great American Road Trip. I imaged a lighthouse and sail boats. Then I read about a lighthouse in CT being converted into a children's playhouse! So this is Connecticut!

Maine Wilderness

Next stop on The Great American Road Trip... Maine in a 1969 Chevy Camaro!

I should have drawn a moose peeking out of the forest, but the truth is I went to college in Maine and never once saw a moose. (I have seen them in my yard in Westfield MA!) 

The scenery in this drawing reminds me of the back roads where my cross-country ski team would train on roller-skiis. (Hey I am lucky to be alive- mine didn't even have breaks!)

So now I just imagine traveling those roads in a 1969 Camaro- nice right?
