Wagons and forgot a demo

Off the 99 near Bakersfield is a tiny junkyard with mostly bleached out fifties and sixties cars. This is one a a series of paintings on The 99 for my Bakersfield Museum show in December.

Just a note of assurance that all's ready for my demonstration for
a demo Wednesday evening at 7:00pm, Nov.5th at
Rodgers Senior Center. Here's the full address in case you want to
Map Quest: 1706 Orange Ave., H. B., CA 92647.

apparently simple but very descriptive... I like how you do objects in the same way of the rest of the landscape.

I didn't see this one at your studio the other day, I like it. The pink and blue is a nice touch.

I think the lighter palatte combined with the 'blight' theme is really an effective contrast.

You seem to have pushed your color up a notch with this beauty. A very fine painting. Reminds a little of a painting by Fairfield Porter of a similar car I once saw.

If you get a chance please check out my paintings of urban scenes and landscapes of San Diego at

Hope to see your work in person sometime soon. Best,

Love this painting, the sensation that gave me is that I imagine myself being inside the car reading a book and listen to music...don't ask me why :)

I always like hopw you can tell there's natural sunlight in there, like you took a little chunk of the sun--no forget I said that, it sounds too fruity.

great one Bill, you and old rusted cars seem to get along well. You should check out this book...Ghosts in the Wilderness (
It's right up your alley, lots of abandoned stuff in the prairie lands rusting cars etc, very cool stuff!
