Green Truck (oil on canvas, 2008)

(Private Collection)
This small (10 x 20) canvas was done in my studio after two drawings that I did on location, one in pastel and one in graphite crayon. At the moment, we are in the height of the black fly season. I got eaten alive while working on the drawings and painting outdoors in oils is impossible at this point because the flies become embedded in the wet paint.
