last winter i did a bunch of vehicles and semi tractor trailers against bright orange walls, flatbeds sitting in a field, the sides of old run down buildings etc. i love painting and dont really care what "it" is i just enjoy describing the light on it. sometimes its not a marsh, or a beach umbrella, or a pretty sailboat with a setting sun. cant help that. sometimes its a field of haybales where i chose to put in the billboard and busy street running by it. i paint stuff like this as much as the "pretty touristy" stuff (which puts the majority of bread on my table) so i'm still doing tons of it.
i totally understand a gallery not wanting to put up a painting like the one above. for crying out loud, most people dont want a van sitting under an old country store. but some do.
