I found this old Chevy flatbed truck in this painting in the small Sanpete County town of Fountain Green. It was actually part of a display that could be called an outdoor museum of sorts. Not only were tractors displayed with it but an old wood barn was there covered in old signs, license plates and hubcaps.
Cool, huh? This is just one of those special treats you just might find while wandering the back roads.
The painting was done entirely with a palette knife. On the body I tried to keep the palette knife strokes simple, just lay them down and leave them alone, it created a bit of a patchwork effect yet the form of the body is still quite clear. I just love these kinds of visual tricks that make an abstract application of paint look like something recognizable.
