HAULIN’ PEARS by Linda McCoy

This little truck is someone’s history. Who knows who it belonged to, how many family members played with it or what their life was like growing up. I wonder about vintage things, they come to us bearing the baggage of their past but they don’t tell. Ah, but the wear marks are telling. This truck was made by MARS. Probably in the 30’s sometime and it was really played with. The yellow is still pretty bright despite its age but some of the rusty areas are worn to the steel. Must have been left out under the porch during rainstorms.

I started this painting in summer before our pears ripened.

I have to go, there’s an episode of American Pickers on. Or is it Antique Roadshow?
