Trucks and Days Gone By
This red truck challenge really struck a chord within me. The challenger, found this red truck while on a walk around Eugene, Oregon. She photographed and challenged us to paint this old, red beauty. It immediately brought a smile to my face and memories of my Grandfather, Bomp. A sign painter by trade, he painted advertisements on the side of trucks for business owners. He kept photos of all the lettering and signs in a small photo album. Recently my family put these delicate photos on a DVD. Bomp has been gone a long time, but I treasure these photos and not so long ago painted a similar red truck.
