I love old photographs whether they are color or black and white. The photo ref. for this one was actually already color, but that yellowish 60's color.I painted this from another "Found" photo that I got on ebay. I love these two, and everytime I paint an older couple, I name them Dot N Ted. Why you may ask? We were driving down highway 40-61 in St. Louis and saw an old lady driving a car with her husband beside her. Their License plate said "DotnTed." Wish I had gotten a pic of them.
Well, anyway, this couple in the painting i'm sure have long gone to 'be with Jesus' as we say, as the photo looked vintage late 60's, but they will live on immortalized in oil paint!
I love to imagine these snowbirds enjoying the sweet life in Florida!
