. . . painted a favorite


Heavy Equipment III, mixed media on canvas, 20 x 20"
Had another good day in the studio . . . finished this painting, which was inspired by a photograph I took of a metal storage facility on the side of a dirt road in the country on the way to a junkyard for old broken-down semis, trailers, buses, and other very large motor vehicles. I think I have posted the original photograph, and this painting is a close likeness. I think I'm blurring the lines between abstract and realistic painting . . . I painted realistically a picture of an abstract object? My mind boggles . . .

This is great work!!! I particularly love Heavy Equipment I, and I am fascinated by the fact you say the surface is smooth. I certainly doesn't look it. You've created a very effective visual effect. Well done!

Thank you, dismore. I appreciate your comments. And I would love to have a drink of that cocktail.

Caterpillar Inc., moving to boost its presence in the booming Asia-Pacific market, on Wednesday unveiled an approximately $500 million transaction that will boost the heavy-equipment giant's 50 percent ownership stake in a joint venture to a controlling 67 percent. Some of these used equipment are sold in Banago, Philippines. I got this information in komatpillar.com
