We kick off this week with a digital painting based on one of the photos I took Saturday at the South Charleston Summerfest car show. I had already packed up my regular camera when I saw this perfect composition right in front of me on D Street. I snapped it on my cellphone (not a smartphone) and it came out perfect, with no cropping required and a really cool sun glint on the Tri-Five Chevy. Once home, I tweaked it color-wise and painted over it with my digital oils. You can find the original picture in the photo essay I posted Saturday night. As always, click to enlarge.

Fans of cutting-edge art will want to head down to WVSU this evening. At 6 PM the opening reception for Michael McKowen’s The World of the Willing happens. You can read all about it in last night’s Sunday Evening Video.

Later today, check PopCult for The RFC MINI SHOW starring Chuck Biel’s Jazz Lab One.
