Old Red

Old Red

So, what's a plein air painter to do on the coldest day we Floridians have experienced all winter? Why, put on several layers of clothes (the ones usually reserved for out annual ski trip) and go outside and paint of course?! And yes, I'm well aware that mid 40's is nothing compared to much of the rest of the country, but it's all relative! Anyway, while scouting out a good spot this morning I happened upon this little dirt path about a mile away from my house. The object at the end of it was actually an old red (fading to pink) couch that someone had apparently just dumped and left. Decided to use my "artistic license" and turn it into an old red truck instead!
