Big Red and the Gang

Big Red and the Gang
Oil on masonite,  10x8

This morning was a bit overcast, but warm and comfortable.  After a little scouting for "oil rigging" gear, we landed on the back road of the Podolsky Petroleum Oil Yard.  These wonderful old tanks sported all stages of rust and discoloration - making them fabulous subjects for painting! One of the best parts of participating in these plein air events is the opportunities I get to paint new and completely different subject matter.  Where would I ever find such tanks in Missouri? I do see small pump jacks dotting the landscape, but never tanks like this.  This makes painting number 1009 in 1009 days :)
