I took some photos of a line-up of old trucks in Spraque, WA. This guy had quite the collection. Here’s a painting of one of the trucks. The photos were taken early morning with snow still on the ground. The trucks were all frosted up. Can ya tell?
This was done with a pallet knife while looking at the photo on the computer.

I’ve been practicing art in one form or another for most of my life and have been painting since about 2003. I do explore other medium but primarily use either acrylic or oil paints.

For me art has always been about the enjoyment of drawing and creating. It’s about challenging my eye, my brain, and my hands to recreate what I am seeing on a two dimensional surface.

So far, my paintings have been influenced by anything resembling old boots. In other words, anything that shows it’s character & history in the cracks and creases caused by use and abuse, weathering and age.

Other than that I paint things that are readily available. Anything around the house that looks interesting enough to keep me painting!
