Run'em, Wreck'em and Store'em..Auto Wreckers, Sort of











Where the roads are rough, sometimes washed out and the crusher never gets there, you can find yards full of cars that are all one make, but different years. They were bought for $25 bucks, mid last century, run into the ground and when they would go no more they became permanent gothic yard ornaments. The next runner brought in and kept running as long as interchangeable parts from the previous wrecks would allow. And then the next one was acquired...thats how yards in remote areas got full of cars. The details man, the details, just give me the details...okay, okay, just bink to blow.

I binked and blew. Really nice piece; composition and technique. Like the crispness to the paint and painted lines and also the gull placements. Loose and fresh but obviously very considered.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks, Clive, feeding the DP's...these "set" pieces are challenging to do because they are all imagination.

Carl said...

(we followed an old beat up Gremlin today. I think he saw us and left the parking lot. Anyway, I'll probably put up some bad pictures from my cell camera of him running away :p)

Happy Monday!

Michelle Smith said...

Hi Ron,
Have we seen this one before? It looks kind of familiar. It's a nice painting. So you're painting daily again? That's quite ambitious of you.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Joan, the house I found when I was up in the interior working on a big bridge, It is an imaginary scene that I enjoy painting.

Ron Morrison said...

Thanks Michelle, I joined up again for Feb, I am painting quite a bit but not a painting a day. Yes I've painted this one a dozen times and this is an old painting.
