The Quarry Park is an abandoned granite quarry re-purposed as a county park. The quarries now feature rainbow trout, swimming beaches, and rock climbing; not to mention very unique imagery for painting from. It has been a recurring subject matter of mine for over 15 years and I love painting at the park. The unique blend of organic natural geology with man-made grout piles and serenely placid water make for dramatic scenes that I can't help but paint. The best part is that each time I go there I feel like I am experiencing something new.
I found it charming how these trucks were parked front to front and at a converging angle. I don't normally paint vehicles, or at least not as a center of interest, but in this case there was a real presence to the way they occupied this space.
