Last Chance Texaco

August 18th, 2014

I’ve wanted to paint this for a long time, and knew it had to have the lonely Texaco station at one end, the horses at the other. This summer in Vancouver, I spotted a pristine, shiny red El Camino parked outside the Abruzzo cafe. I knew right away this was the missing piece that links the two ends…the urgency of the car that has to get there before nightfall, and the indifferent stoicism of the wild horses, calm and fixed in their place. This is 15″ x 60″, acrylic. (click to enlarge, click again to enlarge further.)
