TWO TONE / Daily Painting #970

Oil on Paper Mounted on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

The first time I saw this truck belonging to the Amerind foundation in the Dragoon Mountains of South Eastern Arizona, I didn't have a camera with me, and the friend I was traveling with was in a hurry, so no time to sketch. But I liked the way it was visually emerging from the darkness of the shed it was housed in. The image haunted me for years until, recently, I returned and got a series of photographs. And, finally, got my chance to paint it.

I'm going to try something new today; I'm going to post a photograph of today's painting subject on my daily photography page. if you would like to see it,

  1. This is such a perfect example of how the artist sees and interprets, putting so much of themselves into the art work. The photo of this old truck, is a photo. Through the eyes of the artist it is transformed into a meaningful personal work of art.

  2. I can see why you wanted to paint this truck. This one has its own unique look. This may be the reason trucks today have blending colors instead of just one.
