Jay Koka: “I was out on my bike last year (2008) and I pulled up beside a friend driving a beater. I said, sarcastically, hey, nice car!
As is usual for me, the idea for a painting came in a flash. And as is also usual for me, it took me a while to get it done.
Oddly, I had not considered the impact of the very large image area occupied by the door until I actually started the painting. I was very concerned at the beginning that it would become the dominant element of the painting. I had to work hard to keep it under control and in the end, I think it worked out well. “Hey, Nice Car” features my Porsche Cayman S and an interior that makes it worthwhile to look inside.”
A very large 45x60” major work currently in the artist's collection.
