"Morning Reveille"

"Morning Reveille"  18x24" Oil on canvas

This week's painting features another one of the old abandoned trucks that I saw in a campground we stayed at in Santa Fe last summer. Standing alone in an empty field with one broken headlight, reflecting the first rays of the rising sun, this old timer stands tall in his rusty shell saluting the morning sun. It sort of reminds me of one of the war heroes seen hobbling on a cane, or in a wheelchair proudly saluting the flag on Veteran's Day. While this truck was found in Santa Fe, the scenery was taken from a photo I shot in Montana. The quiet stillness of the landscape just seemed to invite the company of this unsung hero. Anybody have any idea what the year and make of my model might be?

Don't forget Head on Down the Highway one-woman-art show starts this week, and runs for three days only, Thurs.-Sat. at The Linda Watson Gallery located at 204 North Main St. here in Conroe. Gallery hours are 8-5 Mon.-Fri., Artist's Reception is Sat. from 6:30 - 9 p.m., with a short reading from my new blog book at 7:00 p.m.  Hope to see you there.
