"Left Behind:

"Left Behind"

10 1/2 x 14 watercolor


A strange little red truck was in the tractor graveyard. These three vehicles seemed to be a particular family. If they were cartoons, I am sure the tractors would be whispering words of comfort to the poor little truck. Will they forever repose here in the tractor graveyard: Wonder what is their destiny? As rusty and old as they are, still I think they make an interesting and colorful painting, just like people, huh. Interesting analogy!

Click on it to see details. I threw on some sea salt on the wet paint to give texture and at the bottom foreground, I used siran wrap laid on the wet paint to simulate rough and slightly muddy ground. Your comments welcome.


  1. You've created some really neat affects in the ground area. Adds interest.

  2. wow! i love all your paintings, great effects and hues.
