It's fun to be in a very remote state forest, and come across these pump jacks out in the wilderness. I mean, you're out in the middle of nowhere - and BOOM - a rusty thing! I like rusty things! I set up in the quiet - oh the pines were so fragrant, and the sun was warm....when all of a sudden the pump jack groaned and moaned to life. There seems to be a common theme with me painting along, and being startled by weird stuff, you know?
There was one car on the two-tracker, and the woman inside asked me for directions. GPS is useless, and she was lost. "Which way to civilization?" she asked me. I dunno, I came here to lose touch with civilization. She got her bearings ( turn south at next stop sign and keep going until pavement appears), and I put up with two more grindings of the pump jack before I went home.
I have an interesting profession. I am an artist, which means I look at everyday life and see interesting things. Welcome to the blog! I'll be including stories about my adventures in art and the colorful world around us.
