Toy Truck, 6 x 8
I drove by this beauty this afternoon in Caldwell [corrected — originally misnamed the town, Chandler] after attending my daughter's swim meet in College Station. There's plenty of natural beauty between Austin and Aggieland, but this red behemoth just screamed to be painted louder than anything else on the trip. The driver, Erich, and his wife, Jackie, were more than happy to accommodate me and came out a couple times to check on my progress. Painting en plein air has to be the best way in the world to meet and get to know people you would never have had the chance to, otherwise. And with today's weather around 70º, it couldn't have been more enjoyable.
