"Back Lot Blue Beauty"
18"X 24" As I have mentioned many times, one of my artistic passions is painting old trucks. I have positioned this truck in front of an old shed. The model for this shed used to stand next to State Route 274 just east of Interstate 75 in Ohio. I have used this shed many times in paintings, sometimes reversing it so that it faced in a different direction, but always as companion to an old truck! This winter the old shed collapsed during a wind storm. I was not surprised, it was looking more and more 'frail' as of late. Even so, I was sorry to see it as a pile of rubble. Time keeps turning - the journey continues.
