This painting was began en plein air (outdoors). The owner of the old International Truck was ever so accomadating as he charged the battery, got it started and moved it a few feet this way and that, while I tried to decide which placement would look best in my painting. The day was over and I was not finished so I decided to complete the painting on “Painting Journeys”. I also thought it would be nice if the veiwers of my show had a chance to see what the area I live in looks like. This is pretty much a scene right out of our countryside here in Sheboygan County. Many farms, old trucks and really nice people.
