Hubcap Reflection in Marceline

Reflections on Radio Mickey
An original painting by Henryk Ptasiewicz
16×16 oil on panel

I painted an Oldsmobile, which someone had parked on High Street so we could have a subject, then I noticed the reflection of Mickey Mouse in the hubcap.  Marceline, Missouri is the town where Walt Disney spent his formative years. The original wishing tree is about 300 yards up the road from where this was painted. There are statues of Mickey Mouse all over town, an extensive Disney museum, and the cinema plays Disney tunes all day, and consequently made the above picture. — Henryk Ptasiewicz
