I took a collector(of mine) out to photograph the trucks while I worked then back for dinner to find out that we both had the same Uncle Howie and Aunt Dot, we've known each other for 5 or 6 years without connecting the dots:rolleyes:

Oh wow--to the painting and the story! My husband is a gear head, and I must get out in the "back forty" and choose a rusty heap to paint. I love your palette. And I also love the turn of the front truck in order to bring it back into the painting.

Thank you for posting.
