Charlie's Red Ford

This painting was inspired by a photograph that was taken in Illinois in 1961. This is my Dad's 1960 Ford, which I remember very well. Seeing that photograph brought back many childhood memories. It was my first truck to paint, and I had a good time painting it. It is 9" x 11" oil on canvas.

I enjoyed painting it so much that I started another truck painting at the studio yesterday. It is a good-looking, rusty old wrecker that we saw in Salado. Hope to finish it up soon.

  1. I love the truck.... You did a great job. I think a truck paint out would be fun this spring.
