Just delivered this commission — father and grandfather of my friend Stephanie. She asked me to paint this as a gift for her father. If anyone can tell what make and model the truck is, I’m curious to know. Cars compuzzle me greatly.
I’m told the year is somewhere in the 1950s – 1960s.
Initially, this was a class-assigned painting from 2008—a study in complementary colors blue and orange. The other day, I finished painting over it with another study in blue and orange. Same canvas; same color palette. But the new study is based on the mountain next door.
Okay. Self-portrait. Here’s me as a study in likeness; oil on birch plywood, 16″x20″.
I had a really hard time photographing this painting. This is the best I could do for now, but the colors are weird, and it’s a bit warpy-like. As soon as I get a better photo, it will be replaced ;). Click to see them in detail.
