Junk Yard Truck

My sister and I stopped to check out a huge junk yard just the other side of Kalispell. I spotted this beautiful truck sticking out from the junk around it. "Not for sale," said the owner when I asked for the price (like I was going to buy it). 

"Very cool treatment of this junkyard beauty, with the flowing free-form lines adding an extra element of grunge and energy." Lynne with an e at Ragzedge

HI Ginny, I'm visiting from Seth's Blog. I too am participating. Love the truck and your style! Do you live near Kalispel? I'll be up there doing in September doing a bike ride from Kila to Hot Springs and back.

Great to find you through the Buried Treasure gambit. Very cool treatment of this junkyard beauty, with the flowing free-form lines adding an extra element of grunge and energy. Thanks for visiting me at Ragzedge.

I wonder why artists find old junk so attractive? We all do, and your drawing of this relic is superb.

Lynne, not only do you have a gift in the art you present to us, you have gift in writing. I loved reading the Allen story and the airplane landing on your farm.
