"First Friday," as regular readers of this blog know, is a monthly art and entertainment festival held in various towns around Virginia and elsewhere. During the summer, Falls Church's First Friday features a small but choice show of beautifully restored vintage cars and trucks, as well as live music and a gallery opening. I love to draw the vehicles so here is a page of sketches, including the fabulous gull-wing doors and open hood of a fancy Mercedes. The Pontiac was a cherry red "2 + 2" which the owners tell me was only available as a separate model in the USA for one year, 1966. Lest I forget, there is a garden umbrella over a table in back of a nearby Thai restaurant. The band this time was "Big Tow," playing covers of less familiar but just as good songs from past decades.
