This 1939 International is part of a private collection in Joshua Tree, California. The truck is lit by a neon sign that says “The Star Motel”, of which I also have images. I had to take two exposures - with the neon sign on and off - in order to capture the stars.
This is a limited edition piece at this size, numbered 4 out of 30. It is a black and white photo on photo paper that I hand colored with oils (Marshall Photo Oils). Some of the stars were colored with fluorescent paint, so they light up in the dark after being exposed to sun light (or lights that have a UV-component to them).
A certificate of authenticity is also provided on the back. The 24x16" artwork is framed in reclaimed barn wood.

In my 2D mixed media work I enjoy conveying a story of a place with a history. I love bold textures as these are created by passing time, therefore putting emphasis on bygone days. In particular, I aim to show the beauty that exists in human-made wooden, concrete and steel structures contrasting with soft organic forms from nature. My favorite subjects are industrial objects, ghost towns and coastal themes with an element of human origin in it. To obtain my goal I portray these by high-contrast black and white photographs and hand color the photographs with either oils, acrylics or pastels. My frames have a relation with the subject matter, such that the final product is an integrated whole.
