69' Pontiac Le Mans

This is a painting I made for my dad. One of his favorite cars is the 1969 Pontiac Le Mans he used to own. So using it as inspiration I made this for him. It is the silhouette of his car as the background of a dashboard. The year of the car as well as the date I made it are incorporated into it by the speed on the speedometer which is 69 and the mileage for the date. The time is 9:11 which represents the fact that he totaled it as well as my time of birth. I used acrylic paint. The knobs are cut from a dowel stick and the hands are made from balsa wood.
