Poteet, Strait up.

"Poteet, Strait Up"
6" x 8"
Oil on Panel

Another old truck -- 1949 Ford.  I just love these little guys because no matter how rusted and dented they are, they have so much personality-- they seem to have a smiles on their "faces."  I may paint some more on this one.  I think it needs a Texas license plate.  And just for those of you who don't know,  Poteet is the birthplace of my favorite country artist - George Strait. I have wonderful memories of driving from Texas to Memphis when the kids were young.  George would be in the "tape player", and we would all be singing along. The one we love the most was "All My Exes live in Texas."
