Thank you Glenda, this painting is one of my favorites. Somehow I feel I got lucky with this one. I think the key is how well you identify with the subject. I grew up with a 37 Chevy like the one on the right. Weathered, rusty, metal is a subject I return to from time to time.

Thanks, Marilyn, I love to visit Bodie. I've walked the dusty, windblown, streets in summer heat and on a cold day with a rain shower and water running down them. Through all of the elements these old cars remain. They have inspired a number of paintings and I'm not through yet.

I love this piece of yours! What a clever title too.

This tells a story --and has loads of interest. I like it very much. I know what you mean about resurrecting older pictures--I have done the same and felt quite amazed at the new effects. Doesn't pay to throw them out.

Thanks for the comments. I started this painting, the second of the sme subject, about 30 years ago. I felt I had overworked it and it was too dark. Sometime during the last two years, I pulled it out of the storage, collaged the grasses in the foreground, and added enough lights to change the contrasts. Recently sold it, my best price ever.

But rust still wins.. you know I love your work.. and this wonderful piece will be in my favs now..
