Steam Truck - 1906 (Oil on Canvas)


Steam Truck

 30" x 36 x 2", Oil on Canvas, Framed.

This turn of the century truck, is like "Back to the Future". It represented the latest in transportation technology, and now we're still looking at steam, or water-based (hydrogen) systems to propel us about. Tires weren't all that much eh? At least we make those better. This work looks a bit odd until you realize that the box side panel has slipped down, giving a rather strange perspective. I did this to give the picture a comical look - to fit with the headlight "eyes" and a pouting mouth.
