Little Old Lady And Her '67 Parisienne by FastLaneIllustration Little Old Lady And Her '67 Parisienne by FastLaneIllustration
Here's my latest painting that I created portraying my 1967 Pontiac Parisienne. You will however notice that It's not me driving it, but instead a little old lady. This is because I speculate that this car's original owner was indeed a little old lady that lived in rural Alberta. Probably similar in stature to Granny from the Beverley Hillbillies. So, I decided to paint a picture of what my 67 Pontiac may have looked like when it was brand new as it drives through a fictitious sleepy Albertan town that is loosely inspired by a mix of Cochrane and Drumheller, AB. I tried to capture that quaint small town atmosphere with each brush stroke I took. From the railroad tracks, to the shoes dangling from the power lines, I tried to nail every small town-esque detail. I am the 3rd owner of this car, and wish I knew more about its previous history but hey, If I don't know it's past, it presents a creative window of opportunity to make up an interesting story behind the car.

The damn thing is still in the shop. the car is tip top 100% in good shape, except for this one tiny section of the frame is rusted 3/4 of the ay around where the tranny crossmember attatches. the crossmember is practically dangling by a thread. I've been looking for either entire frames, or frame sections from impalas, wildcats, parisiennes, etc that are in nice shape. Just weighing what option of the two will be most forgiving for my budget right now. Until then, the thing isn't street legal. Not sure when my car will be attending shows, but realistically I'd say probably august, but again I have no idea.

oh, alright :) I'm glad it'll be done soon!
i'll be able to go to more shows in august when I get my license. but until then i have to do driving sessions with a rich brat and a driving instructor lady who doesnt know most of what she talks about.
oh well :P

Definitely a favourite! The angle of the car is great and the setting beautiful!

Somebody threw his dirty old sneaks onto the power line? Must've been a visiting Yank.
