12x9 watercolor completed today of an early rusty 1950s Ford flatbed truck that belongs to my husband's family in Vealmoor, TX. I shot this rear end back of the vehicle years ago along with several others but never found the right mood or time to draw and paint it. They used it to haul water and some object sits on top; its passenger door forever standing open, ready to work again. There's something about old trucks or cars no longer needed that are forlorn and sad, a testament to busier times.
