Ghost of a Memory by Tiffany Thomas

My grandfather's old 1956 Ford Pickup truck
sits in a yard under a small maple tree in Milner, Georgia.
The bottom is rusted out, and it is far from its original condition.
In this painting, the truck is somewhat ghosted onto the canvas.
The reds and rust oranges repersent the current condition of the
truck, and the blue-greens and lavender shades can be interpreted
as a memory (my memory as a child) of what the truck once was,
and the futile hope that it might one day be restored to its previous glory.
