Better Days Behind
My Dad's big old Ford truck hauled many a load of grain to market in its day but now it sits out in a pasture like a colorful statue, growing rust. The shiny chrome door handle invites us to consider it as still capable, but the excessive rust tells the truth: all its productive days are past. I was drawn to the play of contrasting colors, shadows and lines brought out by the sunset. Colored pencil on UArt 600 paper.
