Flowerdy Truck Paint Job – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor, Ink & Inktense

I had 45 minutes to paint this morning.  Yesterday, I painted the fenders, tires and interior, so today I did the paint job.  Tomorrow, I do the background.  Backgrounds are usually my least favorite part.  Maybe I can use photoshop to layer it in front of a painting I have already completed.  Hmmmm….. check back tomorrow and see.  😀

About Erich Fromm

Erich Fromm, the humanist German psychoanalyst and author, is best known for his book, The Art of Loving, which describes love as care, responsibility, respect, and knowledge. Born in Germany in 1900, he emigrated to the United States in 1934, fleeing Hitler’s regime. He taught at a number of universities in the U.S. and Mexico and wrote eight books delineating his view of human nature. He believed that modern society makes us feel isolated and long to reach out to others. He died in 1980.

    This makes me smile, Beth. I’d drive that truck, background or no background.

    I think a background would be nice, too. Maybe something simple like fresh green grass.

    Too cute! Love the purple upholstery! Beautiful. Could belong to a flower shop. Or a hippy. Or an artist. Maybe for the background you could do a psychedelic melange of color like your bookmarks! Or a flock of sheep. Ostriches? Or a platform on a showroom floor. (I’m just saying, maybe the background can be fun too!)
