This Week's Sketches and Collages

I have been busy this week, with some sketches, and a couple of collages. The first one is done with a sketch and wash pencil. It is a 1947 Hudson Pick up.
The 2nd one is 'Ol Blue' and it was Kens Pick up for years.  He named it and it stuck. It is parked with all our equipment, and is grown up in weeds. It has a lot of memories for us.  Especially the kids. I sketched it with a fine tip Sharpie.
 The 3rd one is from a photo I took in Seattle on our way to the 'Locks'. It is pencil.
Cotton Collage is just a 5x7, I did for fun. The Wyoming Boot Collage was because I needed  something for the silent auction for my workshop in Wyoming so I collaged it onto a Wyoming map.  The last one is an old station wagon jeep called 'Prairie Rose'. Sketched with my Lamy fountain pen.  I took the photo in Fredericksburg in 2002. I have two more that I am saving back. Will post them soon.

I do love those old woodies. I rarely see any of them any longer. Each painting is just beautiful and I love knowing of some of the memories these pieces were inspired by.

These are all wonderful! I love the way you portrayed the truck in both pieces. And the collage technique is so creative and appealing! I'd like to learn more about the process involved. I'd say you had a very successful, fulfilling week of making art!

Oh Suzy you have outdone yourself again. We don't have the change to see very old trucks or cars around here although Granby has a yearly get together and it's impressive. Next year I should go and take pictures for you. Beautiful work my friend you are an inspiration to us all.
