Though this is not Sally...
I do have a case of vintage trailer consciousness!
I have my eye open for vintage trailers
and can pick them out of a crowd without even trying!
This is a vintage Scamp Fiberglass trailer,
parked right next to us while camping up in the Sequoias this last fall.
I was sitting out one morning, drinking delicious camp coffee
and sketching this little cutie.
I wasn't feeling much like painting yesterday
( or rather coming up with a new trailer idea to paint )
and came across the sketch.
So I just started adding layers of oil over the sketch...
before you knew it I was having fun painting!
The first painting above is what I did yesterday morning...
by afternoon I decided to add in a few Sequoias.
This little trailer makes me happy...
it was a good painting day.

Just a little weird!
I wanted to try one of the burlap canvases I had on hand...
they looked way cool and I wanted to experiment.
This was more about the painting surface than the subject or style.
While I love thick juicy paint strokes...this wasn't that much fun.
Or maybe it was just the first time uncomfortableness...
I think I'll try these burlap canvases again...
just for the challenge of it.

Stepping up in size...
a little more than my usual

This is an 8x10
"Sally In The Driveway"
Not our driveway...just the driveway of a house I painted in Olievenhein.
This and all of my paintings can be seen and purchased
