Old Blue

Old Blue, L. Daniel, 6 x 8, SOLD 

Yesterday I had a wonderful day of painting with my good friend, Carol Marine. We met up in the small town of Burnet where Carol was camping with her family. If you know Carol, you will not be surprised that she had found a junk yard full of old cars and trucks! It was a teasure trove to say the least. This truck appeared to be peeking out from it's hiding place in the trees... (these old vehicles seem to have personalities.) We both got a couple of paintings in before jumping in the lake to cool off. Ah, the joys of summer!!!

Hi Laurel, I love how you cropped the sky down to just enough. We head to the coast soon so I'll be able to do the same.

Hi Laurel.
Wonderful painting. Yes, the car does seem to be poking it`s nose out doesn`t it? Wonderful. All your work is great, but now and again, I have`to praise a particular painting of yours, and this is the latest for me. All the best laurel.

Hi Laurel,

Excellent painting. I love the old car and the colors you have used in the sky. Sounds like a wonderful day.

Ah so that's where Carol's hanging out. She still hasn't answered my interview yet. Camping out...well I'm a forgiving kind of guy.

This is a really good painting. I like junky old pickups too. Great handling of the color too!
