Fuel Tanks, 5 x 7, oil on panel

Sometimes I see things hundreds of times before I do a painting of it. I think of it as a visual gestation period. Twenty years ago I would have never considered these fuel tanks as possible subject matter. So what changed? It's hard to say. I think an artist warms up to the environment and an idea slowly emerges. This small study may never be more than it is, but it is a document of yesterday, December 28, 2010.

  1. I really like this Ron, it reminds me of the fuel tanks on the way to Camp Hill.
