Still Workin’

Nice old tractor paintingI saw this old tractor in Penryn, Ca, and had to paint it. It looks like it was still in working order, just kind of old. Just because we get old doesn’t mean we don’t work any more. I’ve spent my life as an artist and still love finding something interesting to capture for my memories.

George Allen Durkee march 7 2017

George Durkee gave a talk and demo and all I could see from this position was his back so, instead of wondering what he was painting I decided to do a little of my own art. He was a good model and didn’t move too much from this position.
