“Cruising Main Street” is a representation of the almost comical ritual of cruising, people leisurely driving their automobiles. A ritual that has been with us since the dawn of the automobile. The term Cruising has been most commonly associated with young people parading back and forth what they consider to be the local hot spots of activity, to see, and be seen.
As a youngster, I fantasized being either an automobile artist, or cartoonist, but eventually became more interested is the larger world of art, and became far more interested the art of expression. Yet, I suspect my earliest fantasies of becoming a cartoonist still have some impact on the way I paint, and see things.
