Racer S, part 3


      After a LOOONG work day,  I came home and finished up some of the coloring for the bodywork. For me this is easier than everything that came before.  The hardest part is knowing when to stop adding detail. Sometimes I go too far and can’t recover, but an artist named Warren Louw explained it to me.
     Ha! Warren. If you had told me in the 80’s that one of my friends and mentors would be a white South Afrikaan,  I would have laughed at you. I’m glad my world has grown. I was never prejudiced,  but apartheid didn’t seem like a friendly environment to me. In many ways though, its a version of my beloved South.
