I painted another
purple cat again…
If you didn’t know this about me, I absolutely LOVE red trucks. Old red trucks, but I drove a new red truck (2014) for 2 years (hubby drove it for about 2 before that or so). I used to hate red vehicles, but gosh, not anymore. Especially after driving one. On that note, I still hate black vehicles and I’ve owned 2 of those (plus hubby’s 3 black trucks). Anyway… moving on.
A few years ago it seemed like we saw the old red truck with a Christmas tree in the bed everywhere. I wasn’t sure what the infatuation was, but then I figured it out. First off, it became a thing because it brings back that nostalgic Christmas. That Christmas everyone wants to have in a snowy cabin, hiking out to pick out the perfect tree.. yada yada yada.
Well… I love vintage trucks anyway… so I absolutely fell in love. In fact, I almost have a vintage truck for my door for every season/holiday. No joke.
So my friend Harriett saw where Paint the Town Columbia was doing online classes. And one of their paintings happened to be the one above. I quickly ran to the store to get the materials I needed and bam, I painted the scene above. There are parts I wish I could have done better, but I absolutely love it!
I always amaze myself… I can barely draw a stick figure sometimes and yet, I’ve now painted a few times. I guess goes to show you that you can do anything you put your mind to…
