Not Abandoned…

…just left alone for a while… 2 of my favorite subjects – Country Roads and old trucks. This piece started simple enough, then the Gods took over. I traced the truck, but the rest is just freehand insanity. As I was finishing, this shaft of light business happened- giving it a cliched quality. But I decided to go with it (Ergo the Gods). The title was also "Abandoned", but with a spiritual overtone now, I had to change it. 5 layers. Oils. Orig working size appx 12×16" at 200 ppi.

About Skylar

When I was 13, I was given a paint-by-number for xmas. This was a new thing, and I found I liked painting - but the numbered "squares" were too tedious. I turned it over, painted a scene I was looking at, and have painted ever since. I studied in Europe as well as Hawaii, New Mexico, & California. For many years, I had my own Graphic Art business, where I did everything from designing & lay-out to Art Directing publications & newspapers. I moved to Houston in the early 90's to "Semi-retire". Well, that didn't work out at first, and I found myself doing Murals and Commissioned paintings in high-end homes for several years. Now I really am retired, and paint just what I like (Except for commissions, which I still like to do). Among those who have collected my work: L.A. Times Corp., Beverly Hills Post Group,Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Sarah Vaughn, Carmen McRae, Robert S. Woods, Bank of America, Calif., Northgate Forest CC,Houston, The Gulbergs, Houston, Dr.Robt.Bell, Houston, My Web Site - .  E_M add is , or, , or
