Hanover Township Firetruck

Hanover Township Firetruck, 24x24
available

Hanover Township encompasses the farm my mother grew up on in northeastern Ohio. This 1940s firetruck served the township for decades. It still runs, thanks to the restoration efforts of my cousins, the Fureys, some of whom still live twenty miles or so down the road in Malvern, Ohio.

Your firetruck struck a positive note with me, immediately. I'm drawn to any painting with a vehicle, particularly if it is old and in an impressionistic style. Well done.

This jumps right off the page...great work, Stephen! So much detail yet still has your painterly touch. Love that shiny Fire Engine Red finish. And what a great story! So glad this beautiful old truck is still running.

I'm glad this truck was restored - what a beauty. You captured it well, and handled those reds perfectly.
