"Radio Flyer" 12"x16" (Click here to bid on eBay)

"Radio Flyer"
This painting was created from a shot I took at Frank Ordaz's home a year ago this May. Frank has an amazing home in Auburn, California that he has turned into a secret garden. After his two boys out-grew this wagon, it became his garden caddy.
I was covered with Poison Oak rash and trying to forget about it, so shooting scenes and plein air painting with Frank was the only thing that made me forget about how miserable I felt. I also "stole" another shot that I painted last year from his place, a scene from his front porch. Thanks Frank!

I love this painting Mick. Such great colors. I remember the porch swing from last year that you did that made me want to be there... That's a great place for you to visit!

I love this Radio Flyer wagon. It reminds me of my childhood in Dakota City, I had an old rusted one that I hauled everything you could imagine in it. Thanks for the great Memory!
