Re: Burned '66 Chevelle painting...
Those aren’t paintings.
Several people know, including one very good friend, lost everything in those fires. He lost his high school car, a 10 second 5.0 Mustang street car, when the fire swept through his neighborhood. He said they were lucky to get out. He sent me some pictures of his car, burned to a crisp, in what used to be his garage. It was so hot the aluminum heads melted, same with the rims on his car, and his truck parked in the driveway. He doesn’t like seeing pictures of his car, or what was destroyed by the fire. There is nothing left of anything they owned that they didn’t take with them that night. I don’t think he”d appreciate someone profit from his loss, even if it was in the name of art. No matter how well they say their intentions are. These are artistic shots, but who are they meant for, likely the casual rubberneckers.
I have several friends that are firefighters and cops that worked the area during and shortly after the fire. The locals weren’t pleased when interlopers tried to come in on sightseeing excursions. My cop friends were more than happy to oblige the locals and send outsiders away.
