Aside from the fact that it looks as if it might fall off the lift, I like this one.

Bob's Truck on the lift, waiting for a new transmission.

I’ve spent a fair amount of time at Tony’s Auto in Washington, NJ lately.  After watching me sketch Ed working on my K-car, Bob asked if I would do a sketch of his truck.  I was delighted.

A fountain pen and a bit of watercolor can express so much when the values ring true.  A bit of warm color and a bit of cool color create the illusion of a more expanded palette.

There is simply no excuse not to paint everywhere I go when I can get by with such simple tools and a sketchbook.

And …… the mysterious problem of the high idle appears to have been solved, though we are not sure how it was solved.

As I find time I will post comments and reviews about the books I have listed on the “Book Pages”.  I welcome all comments and additional suggestions and reviews of books you have found useful, inspiring and informative.

I also welcome suggestions and reviews of equipment, tools, paints, brushes, etc.  Soon there will be pages added for easy reference for both studio and en plein air painting.
