    The art topic post made me do it. http://community.webshots.com/album/268512505oPEObD

    Due to camera flash/lighting, and some angles, some of them look a bit different than in person.

    My 1st oil in 4th grade:

    9th grade... a painting of the road up near our property:

    Mt. Shasta... 10th grade.

    Mt. Rainier

    Our house in Ione, Wa. that the family built.

    A scene I kind of thought up from the area around our place with my '73 International and my 11.5' Eldorado Camper making it into it.

    Some made-up snow scene from my head.

    Sweet Creek Falls, a stream near Ione, Wa.

    Another made up scene from my mind.

    Of course, me and my GMC had to make it in there somewhere.

    It's been about 3 years now since I painted something. No time with all the trucks demanding attention.

    Nice art work there!
    I was never good with paints, probably because I have problems with colors. Use to sketch all the time, usually when I was in class. But that first one for 4th grade is amazing :laugh:

    Real cool man, I never liked paint, too messy, to muddled, you seem to do real good with it though.

    I went and dug up some pictures from high school of the background I got asked to paint as well as be technical director for the drama play.

    It was the largest painting I had done. 6 4x8 panels creating one 24'x8' background behind the movable stage pieces we had to build.

    And a rare shot of my pre-cavemanish days...

    Ahhh... back when I didn't even have a license and I rode the buses... now I own them. Made me come across this picture in the year book of one of my now owned buses on an average school day.

    The play scenery is what I used to do and plan to do again at some point. Right now I just set up and strike other folks' work. Unfortunately, workin in the big theatres pay better.


    By the way, I do like the work. Some day when the time permits I'll get back into the brushes.

    Nice stuff, Allan.:)
