I'm Still Lovin' Old Trucks

Rust Bucket
6" x 8"
Oil on Panel

Here is another rusty old truck.  Of course, a nicer word is "patina," not rust. I painted this one with a palette knife.  I love the energy and vitality that the palette knife creates with the broken and raised areas of paint.  The 3- dimensionality of the paint casts little shadows and creates texture that is so different from one painted with a brush.  
I need some more photographs of trucks. Wish I knew where they keep old rusty "has-beens" in Memphis.
