Title: “A Veteran’s Ride”
Artist: Dean Glorso
Medium: Oil on Canvas

Description: This is a 1957 Chevy painted on 24″x30″ with oil on canvas. The original was donated by the artist at a Car Show at the Colorado Freedom Memorial. Proceeds went for the Memorial, Aurora, Colorado in 2015.
My oil painting started after the 9-11 attacks on America. Sleep was troublesome, and I decided to pick up a paint brush to see what I could do. in 2008 my wife Joy gave me art lessons to Christmas to a well-known painter in Brighton, CO by the name Judith Dickinson. I love the old 1950s automobiles. The ‘57 Chevy was one of my favorites growing up. I am a USMC Vietnam Veteran 1968-1969. Note, that in the reflecting chrome of the 1957 Chevrolet, you might notice the military campaign ribbons.
