"Good Old Boys"

"Good Old Boys"
24" x 24" Oil on Canvas

I'm mixin it up a little today...and sharing something quite a bit different than my usual landscape and botanical works. As you probably know if you've followed my work on Facebook or here on my blog, my husband is a "car guy." From time to time over the years, I've painted cars and trucks in pastel and oil. A trip to the "bone yard" is always an adventure, and the faces on these trucks had my imagination cooking up stories of past lives spent hauling construction materials and maybe visiting a drive-in or two. Old but not forgotten, these rusty vehicles are experiencing a renewed popularity at auto auctions, and believe it or not...collectors are adding these "patina" vehicles to their collections.

"Good Old Boys" is painted on 1-1/2" depth canvas with sides painted black, ready to hang and enjoy. You may purchase here and have it shipped to your door, or purchase here and pick up at my studio/gallery at Liberty Station, Pt. Loma, and I will refund the shipping. $625 + $40 to ship anywhere in the continental US or Canada. Updated 11/23/14: Sold!
