Pink Farm Truck – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Sharpie

In the reference photo by Elainesq at WetCanvas, the truck was under the barn awning and was actually rusty and tired looking.  I drug it out into the open and gave it a fresh paint job.  🙂

About Cardinal Leon Joseph Suenens

Cardinal Leon Joseph Suenens played a major leadership role during the Second Vatican Council in the early 1960’s; his reforms include reciting the liturgy in modern languages, expanding the role of laypersons, and opening a dialogue with other religions. He was born in 1904 in Brussels. Wealthy relatives wanted him to study economics and manage their fortune, but instead he entered the priesthood. He was witty and charming, with an enthusiasm for soccer. He died in 1996.
