A Vintage Truck Sketch

A Vintage Truck Sketch – 5″ x 7″ Work in Progress

I do some art nearly every morning before I get ready for work.  It’s like I need to do art and it always makes my day better when I start it this way.  Yesterday morning I drew this truck.  This morning, I inked it and started painting it.  Tomorrow, I’ll paint the truck and maybe the background.  It’s red in the photo I drew it from, but I’m thinking it may be a little fancier.  We’ll see.  😀

About Anatole France

Anatole France was the pen name of Nobel Prize–winning French author Jacques Anatole François Thibault. He was born in 1844 in Paris. His father was a book dealer, and France spent his life among books, including 14 years as assistant librarian to the French Senate. His novels, including the Contemporary History series and The Gods Are Athirst, often use allegory and religious symbolism as vehicles for moral questions. He died in 1924.

    you are my idol. To draw everyday is what I wish for…I will now have to make it happen.

    No clowns on the truck please. They scare me. But birds or flowers would be cool. Can’t wait to see what you do, you always come up with something clever.

      Me, too! I’m very afraid of clowns! he he

      I do love painting something every day. It’s like I’m missing something critical in my life if I can’t make art. 🙂

    I vote fancy! Maybe it’s for flower delivery, or clown transportation or um, the bird watching club. 🙂 Love the vintage vehicles!

        Yay! Also, your package is in the mail! Also, omigosh, Beth sighting! No seriously, I hope you’ve got time to breathe these days! (And I’m rethinking the clown idea. Clowns are scary. Of course, there’s always the Halloween angle.) 🙂
