Life and Death

So last week, as I was driving around with my dad, I saw something that really stuck with me. As we pulled up to a stop light, a hearse stops along side us...Then right behind that was a minivan with a "baby on board" sign. That image of life and death was just so perfect that I couldn't stop thinking about it. I started painting this when I got home so I would always remember the image. I actually had to look up some referrence photos of both the hearse and the minivan then work on the composition a little bit. Hope you all like it!

I'm glad it wasn't the hearse following the minivan. It's more optimistic this way.

Awesome work Chris. Thank you so much for responding, I really appreciate it, seriously. I really really enjoy looking at your work. It has that spark of life that so many others forget on the way to making soem marks in the sketchbook.

Thanks again and all my best,
