"Where's Ollie?"

This is another painting for our show in October - the show where I am doing my interpretations of Pamela's photographs.  This scary little painting is of an old truck which has a tree growing through it and a cement sculpture of Stan Laurel from "Laurel and Hardy!"  What it is doing in this abandoned truck, we'll never know, but it adds a sort of eerie feel to this painting.
The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Oh I do love this one, Barb. And I especially love the idea that someone put a Stan Laurel statue inside of it. Whimsical and ghostly at the same time. And what a fabulous vehicle!!

I thought this was a fascinating photo - ghostly, as you say! Someone had a sense of humor, didn't they?
