RED TRUCK 2 Square C

Our CBC story began years ago and we will eventually post it, but this is our 2nd red truck. We will be posting our squares as the puzzle squares are completed. Here is mine. Top right of a 9 10” square painting. At the end of the afternoon at the Upstairs Gallery in Arlington CBC members were saying “Stop. Quit painting. You’ve got it.” In the hot light of this Texas morning as the acrylic has darkened, I’m not so sure. It may need a few hot licks.
I didn’t want to do the foliage. I hate doing the foliage. I had a headlight area on the previous truck and got to use RED – absolutely one of my favorite colors but - now green, green, and more green.
Some from the CBC group made a photo op trip to Santa Fe in ‘06 where we were in gallery heaven, saw photographs of old trucks, and found old trucks even when we weren’t looking for them. When we returned we painted our first collaborative painting. CBC has always wanted to paint another GMC and now is an opportunity as we start preparations for an October show at the Petroleum Club, Fort Worth, TX. and a July show at the City Hall in DeSoto, TX. Who is finished with their square and wants to tell some of their thoughts on the painting of it?
