So often , when driving the backroads in the Ozarks you run across rusty cars , trucks & farm equipment in the fields . As an artist , I love to paint this subject as I think of its history , the family that road to town in them , the farmers that plowed their fields . I’ve accentuated the colors in these painting to bring out the depth of the patina. . . This includes a metal frame that I have rusted using a reactive metal paint .
