"Chev. Truck" and "Mt Rainier" finished, oil painting

Got to go back to this farm last week. Last year in November, when it snowed I got several successful paintings from the Bledsoe farm in Poulsbo on Pugh Rd. This year it was after our first snow. This truck was parked in the same exact position as last year so I painted it again from a different perspective.12x16, oil on stretched canvas $250.00
I finally finished the Mt Rainier painting, I decided to add a car for interest . I still havn't figured out if it is coming or going...... This could reflect metaphorically on the artist.......

1....the obvious...I don't know if I am coming or going..

2...I've had a mountain top experience and am now headed for the valley....or I've been in the valley and am now headed for the mountain....or my cars out of gas and I'm coasting to the gas station....

3....I didn't do a very good job on the car..

But the best thing is to let you ,the viewer tell the story.

18x24, oil on stretched canvas, $450.00

WOW! Both of these are top notch. I disagree with you about the job you did on the car. You don't need detail there because it's in the dark and the headlights stand out more. It's perfect as it is. Excellent work!

Thank you Silvi! Hope your Christmas is blessed with joy and peace!

Rob, I like the weathered look of both the truck and the building. They have character - like most things that have stood the test of time.
You do amazing things with light and shadow. The sun on Rainier is so beautiful. I think the car in that painting is going places...like you.

Merry Christmas to you too, Robin!

Ann, thanks for your kind words. I have been inspired lately ;)

The Mt Rainier piece turned out really well. The mountain has the ghostly feeling that they really do evoke when you're in their presence. The car was a great idea and the misty forest road too. Taking your time on this one really paid off.

They're both really nice work.

Love the painting of Mt. Rainy. I think the understated vehicle lights are rendered with just the right amount of that certain something, something.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
