Artist's Description

Featured – - – Art Universe & A Place To Call Home ~:0)

The Technical Secrets known only to a precious few – - – Canon G11 compact camera – Wide-Angle Lens (15mm) – huge sunset we painted on the barn – earth shipped in from Mars – PhotoShot used to stitch layers of magic together – one tree-frog for licking ~:0)

The Story - Yeh that velvet paint job on my 51 Willys Jeep Pickup Truck at Sunset is so fine – the truck is 4 wheel-drive and is rated something over a ton (tonne to u metrix folk) in carrying capacity – Woof! Now if I could only tidy-up the final bits to get it inspected to ride the roads of Texas – Ha! ~:0)

It runs and drives after replacing the rear seals (keeps that pesky rear-end lube outta the brakes) – replacing the brake system with new – disassembling to paint every little cranny with “bed-liner” paint followed by a few top-coats of Velvety Flat-Black to start building a nice patina on the finish – oh yeah ~:0)

Ol’what’shername has pained me everyday since I got it from a guy up in Oregon I think it was – everyday the same question – “When’s Ur Truck Gonna Be Ready?” – U might think she’s excited to ride in it – and maybe she is – but I think she wants me to sell it and add the dinero to a car she’s wanting me to build – – – do u think I should tell her I’ve got to rebuilt the transmission next? Dang!!! She’s not gonna go for that one that’s for sure – HA!!!

Anyway! It’s powered by a Chevy 283 V-8 that is so clean and simple that I sometimes wonder if it has enough wires – I mean – there are almost no wires on this truck – it’s so simple – it’s so utilitarian – – – and It’s So Loud!!! But maybe that’s part of the fun – no maybe about it – it makes a great sound – but the hot rod – or should I say Rat Rod mystique of the thing does get exhausting after awhile – I think I’ll go down to the meadow and pull some stumps with it – it’s all about the torque! – Come the “Pox-Eclispe” it may be the only rod still running in the hills – Ha! ~:0) VivaChas!

P.S. normally I don’t care much for a vertical format like this one for my work – just looks icky to me, but this shot is for a catalog (catalogue) cover so since it’s for them we’ll do it their way, right? ~:0)
