1957 Chevy Tail Fin – Classic Car Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
This classic car canvas print features the very distinctive tail fin of a 1957 Chevy. When it comes to classic cars, there’s no question that a 57 Chevy is something of a holy grail. Those dramatic tail fins are absolutely a part of Americana. Those fins speak of the jet age and the boundless optimism of 1950’s America.
And for me, there was a personal reason to tackle a 57 Chevy. My grandfather owned one. Granted, I never saw it. In fact, he had passed away before I was born, but that car was fondly remembered and spoken of by my Mom for years to come. As a rural mail carrier, he actually traded cars every two years. So the fact his 1957 Chevy was well remembered among the many cars he had shows how special it was.
The fact he owned was is the limit of the homage. He owned a four door and the color was not blue. But this artwork was more about the mood and the times than anything else. I feel like this scene outside a diner at night speaks to Fifties Americana, don’t you? Assuming you’re of a certain age does it take you back? Or if, like me, you’re younger does it fit what you know of the era? I hope you’ll share your thoughts.
Likewise keep in mind if you like this classic car canvas print but are looking for a different subject, I’m happy to take suggestions. Those suggestions are often inspiration for new work. So let me know!
