Oh, this is wonderful! Reminds me of my childhood back in Michigan, riding on the back of my Uncle Chuck's Ford tractor.

thanks Bill...appreciate hearing that! Old vehicles, trucks...tractors..seem to touch something of the past in so many of us...

you can just imagine the cold seat if you had to fire this baby up and go to work. Beautiful variations of "white", as usual. Just friendly a note from the wife/painter of a antique tractor collector, they (all men that love tractors) would prefer it be called a tractor rather then a truck. It's a very difficult subject painted perfectly!

The whites in this are great. I like the warm shadows. Nice work.

These are both really awesome Dad, love the color, the zorn palette is really nice . . . has a nice effect especially for a winter painting.
