Out For A Ride

Pope John XXIII
Out For A Ride, Terry Nelson, 2010
8" x 8" Acrylic on canvas.

Inspired by a photograph I came across online, I found the composition humorous enough to document. Imagine the soundtrack from La Dolce Vita as you view this.

I love that they are riding in the red convertable.

Tara - I wanted to put the monsignor's foot in the air - the guy in the purple in the back seat - but it would have made it sillier than it is.

Very humorous--a snapshop of some probably normally very serious folks taking it lightly :)

Sara - exactly! I have a photo of Archbishop Burke that cracks me up - he's in procession waving to someone - I want to paint it one of these days - It will take more than one session of course. People think I'm making fun of these people, but I'm not at all.
