I participated in an initiative hosted by the Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County, where artworks were created inspired by local wineries. While visiting this winery, I was immediately drawn to the bold colors of this decaying truck. I experimented by thinning my paint to a watery consistency, creating drips. I used this same technique in the front grill allowing the paint colors to fuse. This allowed me a new approach to a traditional subject matter. Additionally, I increased the intensity of the reds by using different tones of greens in the surrounding areas.
