I could have had a V8

This is the old truck, from the last post.  The lighting was just perfect on the front.  I use a lot of Kosher Salt to get the rusty texture. I would love to know where 'all' this old relic has been! They all have a story to tell...

Haul'n Hay

In July, I went out to our neighbors ranch, to take photos of his horse, saddles, etc, and when I drove up there was this wonderful OLD green truck!. Of course I had to photo it, inside and out. The photo of the inside really excited me so I painted it in with watercolor.  It has many many layers of paint to get the dark door.
I had such fun painting it.
(The photo is a little darker than real life, and the steering wheel shows up on the left better than it does in here)


'Smile'  is an acrylic painting of my friend Pat.   She is always taking photos of everybody,  esp at the community happenings!...
