This is a picture of old. Simply the ravages of time on an object that has been well used, probably well-loved! Each of these rust holes, chips and scratches are reminders of days in the past . . . memories . . . good and bad . . . of a life lived, roads traveled.
New things, just baked, just born, just carved, just painted, just invented have that wonderful brand new smell . . . a wonderful freshness and shine . . . great feelings of joy and anticipation of what is to come . . . what will be. We really celebrate new!! . . . . . but on the day I took this (part of a very old Chevy Apache 10 truck still on the road in 2019) my mind celebrated the old . . . the end of a journey. On this day the news was filled with famous people, mostly politicians, remembering the great life of the Honorable Elijah Cummings (a Congressman from Baltimore who had just died at the age of 68.) Hearing the words of his colleagues, Republicans and Democrats alike, about his life, his humility, His honor, compassion and passion, filled me with deep contemplation about life and purpose. He believed we can disagree with folks without being disagreeable. He loved America and he let everyone know just what he thought about being a servant and patriot, but he walked humbly and was kind to all. Maybe we should pay more attention to these rusty old vessels a little more while they are still on the road with us!
I really appreciate you taking time to look at my artwork. Thank you so much!
I am very concerned with our environment and have decided to donate any money I make from any sales of this image to the ENVIRONMENTAL DEFENSE FUND.....because the Earth needs a good lawyer! We all need to speak up and support efforts to protect our environment. We will not get a second chance!
