Dump Truck (sold)

Dump Truck, oil on panel, 12" X 12", 2013
This painting has two interesting origin points. This toy (it's a Tonka) is from my early childhood-- it still has a sticker on it from Alaska where my dad was posted in his Army days (nearly forty years ago). I've thought about painting it for awhile, but had never gotten around to it.
Which brings us to the second half of the origin story. This is the first of several paintings coming up on the blog that were all created as sample pieces for a large, well known company in the home decor industry. Depending on outcome of an upcoming meeting, you may someday see some of my work in their stores.
I'll keep you posted on details as they develop...
