Cargo Trailer


Oil 9x12
Here is a PA done weeks ago with pal Aaron in an industrial patch near San Fernando road and the 134. Local painter Frank Serrano showed up and honoring us with his presence and did a nice little painting. He one of the best local PA Teachers I recommend his classes. Tony Peters came by, too but was to lazy to bring his kit so he went out and got sunburned taking photos.

I picked Frank Brangwyn this week as I see a correlation between last weeks subject and their working man themes and painting approaches, but have no way of proving that Brangwyn inspired Ivor Heel.

Bill, I can't say I thank you every day, but I can say I'm hardly ever disappointed.

This one, once again, has that broken color in the sky I like so much, with that bright underpainting showing through. The thick paint in just the right spots sometimes looks like you might add a little dirt from the location. Wonderful texture.

Another beautiful painting.
I also just purchased and recieved your book Dirty Beauty. I love it, it is so inspiring. I'm getting back out into the city here around the Venice Beach area to paint and your work is an inspiration to me!
Thank you for sharing your work with us on your blog!
