He gives power to those who are tired and worn out;
He offers strength to the weak.
Isaiah 40:29 NLT
While searching out covered bridges in the area north of Eugene, Oregon, we came upon an old dump
truck. I had to take its picture; I knew it would look good in front of an old building. Then, on
another bridge search, I found an interesting old barn in the Corvallis area. It had a perfect place
to park my truck!
Both pictures sat in my computer for some time while I worked on the bridges I had been searching for.
(You can see those in the Bridges
Gallery.) Finally the time was right to begin my work on putting the truck and barn
together ...and I am pleased with the result.
The challenge in this drawing was getting the rust
and blue paint to look right. I had to draw a new truck first. Then I had to rust it. After I had
the rust right, I added the blue. Not quite the natural order.
I really enjoyed working on this project. It reminded me of my car-drawing days when I was a kid.
