Thanks for hosting, Lyndylu, and the great photo refs! I chose the old truck because that's a subject I've never tried painting, and there is something so lifelike about an old truck. I'm afraid I didn't do it justice, but in the spirit of the WDE...

This is acrylics, 10"x8," and took about an hour and 15 minutes. I like experimenting with different palettes, and for this painting, I didn't use any blue. Trying to get that rusty look...

You made the old and discarded fresh bright and beautiful again. A keeper I think.

I really enjoy the warmth of the colors you used. It really conveys the dignity of the vehicle. You did a great job!
