What can I say? I love to paint abandoned, forgotten, broken down stuff. (paging Dr. Freud...). Old trucks, dilapidated buildings, piles of junk. If it's old and decrepit and there's sunlight falling on it, I'm a goner. The trick, I've learned, is to paint it (whatever it is) before it's towed away or torn down or hauled off. The handwriting was on the wall for this old shack: there was a For Sale sign out in front of the property when I painted it.
