Vintage truck


This old truck and others sat in a pasture along rural Highway 12 through the Santa Rosa area, & inspired me as a painting subject. When visiting my friend up there recently, I noticed the yard was empty & asked her about it. She said some people complained about the “junky” vehicles sitting in the field. I’m astonished! I thought these old workhorses aptly conveyed the rural character & farming history of this area. In fact, I’d rather see old trucks & rusted farm equipment than another fake-stone façade winery constructed like a castle. Yeah, a castle that’s been there 2 years, or maybe even 10 years. Great sense of history, folks.
