A cloud painting by a local artist has brought back a sense of nostalgia and a sense the past can sometimes bring forth a new set of challenges.
The painter, a 30-year-old from Chicago, was working on a painting of a 1950s car he called The Rocket Engine, when he got the idea to make a cloud.
He decided to paint the engine’s chrome plating, a popular piece of chrome, black, and red, all the way through the exhaust of the vehicle.
The result was breathtaking, and the car is still being painted.
But now the artist is back in the studio to paint another version of the Rocket Engine.
This time he’s painting the engine with black and white.
The painting, titled The Rocket Machine, was done by the artist and his brother and sister-in-law in their spare time.
The brothers said it was a big success, but not in the way they planned.
The Rocket Machine is a tribute to the old school, said Matt Schoenberg, a painter who painted the vehicle in its original color.
He’s now painting the Rocket Machine with a new paint scheme.
The new paint job is a darker color than the original.
It’s a cool contrast to the original paint, he said.
He’s also painting the new paint with an old school style.
He wants to bring back a little of that cool, nostalgic feel, he added.
Matt Schoenberger, a Chicago artist, paints the Rocket Vehicle with a dark palette.
Matt Schoehner and his brothers painted a vehicle that had a rocket engine in the paint.
Matt and his father, Rick Schoenber, said they were inspired by the old cars in their family.
Rick is a car builder.
He has two brothers, who paint, too, and he has his own company, Schoenker Industries, in Chicago.
They love cars, so he paints cars and vehicles.
He paints a lot of cars and they have a lot to do with his business, Rick said.
But they also paint a lot with the new, more traditional art style, so that’s where they came up with the idea.
They’re doing it with a paint palette, they paint the paint, and they’re using a whole lot of techniques, Matt said.
I’m very excited to paint that rocket, Rick added.
I hope it brings back memories for me.
The paintings are available to view at the Schoenbers’ local gallery, and Schoenbeers plans to sell the artwork at a special auction later this month.
He hopes to raise $1,500 to buy the painting, which will be shipped to Chicago, where the Rocket Factory is located.
Matt said he’s thinking about using some of the proceeds to build an art school in his hometown.
He also plans to start a Facebook page to collect signatures from people who have a good connection to Chicago.
I’ve been thinking about the Rocket Lab, Matt Schonberg said.
And I think it’s a great place to start.
I have no doubt that my kids will love it.
