A to Z Trucks on the Horizon

A-Z Trucks, Digital watercolor compilation printed on aluminum, 40 x 20″, 2017

The image above shows my A-Z trucks from last year.
I had it printed on metal for my 2017 art exhibition at TAG Gallery in Los Angeles.

It’s February and my thoughts are turning towards the 2018 A to Z Challenge.
I’ll be posting images from my #dailytruck series again. I have most of the letters already, there are a few that I’m still hunting (would you believe that I still need to find J and T?).

The A-Z Challenge is a lot of fun. It happens in April, and the challenge is to blog through the alphabet every Monday through Saturday. This will be my fourth year participating!

Happy 4th!

Yesterday, I was doing a massive edit of 313+ #dailytruck images… wall-tapestry_redbubble-grabIn order to create the above wall hanging for my upcoming art exhibition at TAG Gallery.

During the process I came across a multitude of “Red, White, and Blue” compositions.
Here are two especially patriotic trucks [click to see bigger]:

They are the same truck on different days [April 5, 2016 // May 23, 2016],
captured in almost exactly the same location!
I can’t seem to stop my truck obsession, but repeat trucks? Yikes.

The exhibition, #mycommute, is at
TAG Gallery, 5458 Wilshire Blvd, LA, CA 90036
7/11 – 8/5, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, 7/15, 5-8pm

The First

waterlogue of a truck butt
605 North, digital watercolor, 2015

Here is the first waterlogue I made of the back end of a truck for the #myshittycommute series. Created on 6/16/15, I hadn’t yet completely formed my compositional parameters (wipers visible).
This was recently released from “photo jail”.

I have more than 15K photos/images on my phone.
I “lost” computer access to them due to an OS upgrade in September January (no room on the laptop for the new Photos application). I had some clunky workarounds, including emailing to self. I finally decided that I’d had it and got myself a new Mac Mini, which arrived on Thursday. I can now see ALL my truck waterlogues as thumbnails in one place — what a relief! I have to figure out what to get printed for my show in July!

Wait… July 9 (hanging day) is only 35 days away. Uh oh.
Procrastination is the bane of my existence.
