 I know that this car is wonky, but you should have seen it earlier! I might have to have yet another go at this and maybe go a little larger. This one is 5"x7".I think that what I like about this scene are the lights.  The street lights had not yet come on, but the traffic lights and the brake lights looked very warm.

All is well,  XOXOXO, Caroline
