I really like this one. It has so much character. Another one where I see a face, like the car is peaking at me from the corner of it's eyes :)
but even without that it just looks good!

The trees do well to bring the car to the forefront of the shot.
By the way, I did see some old trucks during our trip, plus 2 junkyards, but we didn't get any shots, sorry!
I am planning on revisiting a friend's uncle's farmstead sometime this summer, though, so I'll kep my camera ready.

I love the personality of this car. I agree with newnorth on the peeking aspect. Colors are great too.

Ron - I think I have a new favorite. This one really grabs me - great work.

Michelle Smith said...

Releaf!! You're funny Ron.

Another nice painting.

Great work Ron! Love those background pines and they are a nice supporting cast for the main star. Coloring on the car is particularly well crafted. Hitting on all 8!

Thanks N.N., Anthropomorphism is one of my guiding principles.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Grimm, I'm looking forward to getting some in the email.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Madison, green, green everything is green except for my grass which will go brown soon.

Ron Morrison said...

Hi Lan, stay away from the shinglers.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Cara, now you tell me, your stuff is gone and when your stuff is gone, you know what that means. No more stuff.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I always hope someone will spot the silliness.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks W.K.,I'm usually too lazy to paint branches.

Sandy said...

You are one fantastic artist. wow.. sandy

Liz P said...

Wow! There's so much to like here! The composition, all that cool green-ness, the way you make our eyes see a deep evergreen forest where there are really just a few of your sure and simple brushstrokes, and of course, that aforementioned anthropomorphism! It is a guiding principle of mine as well, although I sometimes think of it as a mild form of insanity:~)

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Sandy.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Liz, there are a lot of people who share the anthro interpretation of things judging by the number of comments about faces and eyes.

Joan said...

Great greens in the car and the background. You do these so well!!

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, they are fun to do.
