A Custom Truck Painting

Well, this is a first! I've never been commissioned to paint a truck before, but last Christmas I met a man at a local show I did who saw this truck illustration and wondered if I might be able to do a custom portrait for him of an old truck he was helping to restore. I don't usually agree to paint automobiles, but it happened to be a truck I really liked, so I said, "Sure. Why not?"

Here's how the painting turned out. If it were totally up to me, I would have added A LOT more wildlife (ha!), but I'm not sure it would have qualified as a "truck portrait" in that case. Anyways, just thought I'd share! :)
