This is an 11 X 14 oil painting I did for my brother in law. It is the first in the Groundhog Series of man trucks I am using to pay rent for my recreational vehicle storage at Groundhog Excavating Inc. He said he would give me a screaming 5 year deal for 60 paintings by Friday. Only 59 more to go. Uh…He did not want flowers. Weird. I asked if I could put sunflowers in the bucket and just got a dirty look. I hope he likes it. I also hope that the next painting I do won’t take me so long. The first is always the hardest. The second never comes out as good as the first and by the third I should figure out a little better what I am doing. I might decide to just pay him cash instead. Good grief.
