It's great to see the original sketch Rich. I don't know how you managed to "channel" my recollection of that old truck, the illustration is spot-on. It gives me great pleasure to be able to see your work on these boards. I think you may very well be the Peter Helck of our generation !

I see we have jumped to page 2. I will repeat the illustration here for continuity sake.

The description in your story was complete and intriguing. Finding some old pictures brought it together. Also, our minds have run down the same crooked little path for many years.
Thanks for the kind words.

I do enjoy your paintings and admire your talent. I have a soft spot in my heart for Coupes since I have a '22

Just thought I should add a piece to the "color" discussion.
Because part of the work I did for so many years involved color television, I was made aware of this significant difference. Mixing colors in the common sense, like mixing paint or yellow light through a blue lens is called "color additive" mixing. The reason a color tv uses a different mix is that the phosphors used on the screen that are "excited" by the cathode ray to display for a fraction of a second a tiny piece of the picture that collectively becomes the television picture, do not mix the way two paints or a light and a lens do. What they do is called "color subtractive" mixing.
Frankly, I do not understand it well enough myself to explain it. It was just something I needed to be aware of with my work. I know it exists, and I know what it was called.
I suspect that the yellow light through a blue lens may not be a true "color additive" mix, But I don't know about that. Color subtractive works similar for some colors, different for others. Again, I don't know enough about it. I sometimes wonder how the early engineers working to develop color television felt back in their day trying to make the thing work.

There's something very appealing about that '09 under six inches of new snow that makes me want to experience getting her started, and plowing through drifted roads, something I've never done. A couple of years ago when we had heavy snows in the valley, my Lizzie was laid up, undergoing an operation to correct the ravages of the "grey death" (aka babbit thrust washers). Snow drifted deep enough I couldn't have gotten out of the shop anyway ! We're pretty much ready for anything now. Oh boy ! Winter !! My favorite thing !! :lol:

I did get my '09 out for photos a year or two ago but the light wasn't really right. This is one of the photos.

Maybe this Winter.
Thanks for the comments.

Rich B. bite your tounge! Its 85 here today. About 10 degrees above average which is too hot for me but I remember earlier this year -22. A nice sunny 65 would be great.

Bench test was inspired by the delightful colors and shapes these items have. My Daughter confiscated the painting so can see it when I visit her.
