Full Moon

This Old truck was at Tokio,TX several years ago. It is gone now. This was supposed to have been a light colored painting but it just wasn't working.  It had a mind of its own...so I let it be what it wanted, which is a night scene, with a full moon! I have read that a painting will tell you what it needs or wants, and this one did for sure! My idea was out the window!
11x14 with frame and mat-available

Fair Weather

Another old vehicle, painted all light! That's why it is named 'Fair Weather.'  This is just pure watercolor carefully put down on plain paper, then after dry, the car drawn onto it.
I tried to leave as much white as I could, just having some colors. This is not an easy way for me to paint!
It took some control! I wanted this to be a Happy go lucky car trip!

Green and Yellow Truck

This old truck was in O'Donnell TX.  I got several photos there when I went to visit a good friend.
This is mixed media using the old phone book pages.  The page automatically made me a license plate. I just left it, not painting anything over it. I enjoy working over the pages, and letting some show through.
This truck is available .11x14 .unframed. $50.00

This was a fun old truck to paint.  It is 11x14 with a mat and frame.  The original photo was just a plain drab gray pickup! I had to jazz it up!
It is available.  $50.00

Old Rusty

 Old Rusty
16x20 framed
This has always been one of my favorite old paintings for some reason!
I can't remember where I got the photo, it has been that long ago that I took it! Anytime we go anywhere, we stop for all old vehicles! Ken is great about stopping, backing up, or turning around!
