    Here You really express Yourself and central US plains superbly, with an essential and masterful effectiveness perfectly in line with what I would see as the classical American painting school.

    WOW...Amazing work here...love the old truck !!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Can't put my finger on why I like this painting so much. It has a feel of home. Like you have just come home from a long trip and what you see is familiar and comforting. Nicely done Skylar.

    Skylar, this is like a continue from So He Left, it is as he has been gone for a few years and is returning home again, such a wonderful painting, you really know how to express yourself thru your paintings

    What a feeling...I can just hear the sound of the wind and the dirt blowing from the road....
    Beautiful work Skylar.

    Update

    Semd - Thanks so much. Yes, I do love old trucks, regardless of condition.
    Shibui- Thank you so much. This is why I love painting this subject matter so. I, too connect thru my childhood - lots of good memories
    Marilyn - Much thanks to you. There is something about a big open sky
    Bobbi & Pat - Both of your comments spurred an addition to the orig. Tho it changes the focus, it still works. Enjoy...
    Sandy - It is Kinda reminiscent of "Last Picture Show" I didn't see that til I read your comment
