Model A Truck

12 x 12 oil on 1.5" gallery wrap canvas, private collection
We saw this old rusted Model A truck when we went out of town this weekend so we stopped and I got photos of it. It had a lantern hanging inside the passenger window -- I wondered if that came standard. The chrome on the front still looked amazingly good considering the years. It's fun to imagine someone getting it for their first wheels... first taste of freedom. It was someone's pride and joy I'm sure.

love this, too--the perspective is great, and your palette enhances a nostalgic feel. Can you imagine driving one. so cool.

Grâce à vous ma chère Camille ce vieux tacot retrouve une seconde vie et est propulsé sur le devant d'une scène qu'elle croyait à tout jamais perdu pour elle...
Belle peinture.
