1925 Autocar Truck

Originally the company was the "Pittsburgh Motor Vehicle Company". They renamed the outfit in 1899 to the Autocar Company.

Some years later the  company decided to manufacture commercial vehicles only. Autocar is the oldest surviving motor vehicle brand in the Western Hemisphere.

In 1953 they sold the company to White Motor Company. However, in later years were related to the Volvo and GMC brands. This image has been converted to a digital painting.

Classic Cars - Classic Cars

This is a 1929 Packard Phaeton restored to perfection! One of the most popular slogan in those days was "Ask The Man Who Owns One"! And, S/B, "Ask The Woman That Owns One, Too"!

Packards were extremely reliable, elegant, powerful, and quality automobiles. The first Packard automobiles were produced in 1899, and the last in 1958.

This image was originally captured with three different exposures, converted to a High Dynamic Range image and then converted to a digital painting.

Pocket of Orange!

The "Pocket of Orange" come from the intense light that hitting the inner part (ovary) of the flower. Of course, this has been enhanced...some colors eliminated while other colors were enhanced.

The result is something a little abstract. However, we get down to the beauty of flowers and how they play a role in our lives.

Bridges Of The World

The Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport on the Oregon Coast is one of the most recognizable bridges in Oregon. It was designed by Conde McCullough and built in the art deco style in 1936.

Mr. McCullough was an American bridge engineer who is famous for designing many of Oregon's coastal bridges on U.S. Route 101. This capture was made early in the morning during the winter where the sun rises in the southeast. There is a orange tinge around parts of the bridge from the sunrise.

In the background is Yaquina Bay and South Beach. You can also make out a pier that juts half way across the Bay...look under the main arch of the bridge. Folks fish and crab from this pier with excellent results.

In the background is the Coast Range. The flat top mountain is Mary's Peak and is some 45 miles away. This magnificent bridge surely qualifies as one of the "Bridges of the World"!

Boat Wall Art

The F/V (Fishing Vessel) Blue Scoop is moored in Yaquina Bay in Newport on the Oregon Coast. She is a working boat that goes out into the Pacific Ocean in search of fish and crab.

She and her crew work hard but, they wouldn't have it any other way! I thought the "Blue Scoop" not just as another one of those fishing boats. There's a wheelbarrow on the deck for hauling the days catch.

I thought that the capture would make for nice wall art!

Lorillard's Snuff

There is this cool antique shop in Wheeler on the Oregon Coast. And, this is one of the displays in the shop. The place is huge...the town small!

The Lorillard sign for "snuff" caught my eye. Snuff is a smokeless tobacco made from ground tobacco leaves. It is "snuffed" into the ole nasal cavity.

It was the thing to do in the 17th century in Europe. Now days folks just "snuff" other things up their noses!

The Blue Rhododendron

Rhododendrons are extremely beautiful plants, flowers and come in a variety of colors. The blue rhody here was transformed into abstract form.

Tulip Wall Art

This lonely tulip was located at "The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm" in Woodburn, Oregon. Each year, in the spring they have a festival and, people come from all over to visit their forty acres of beautiful tulips.

At their farm, you will discover that tulips grow in bunches and, are usually of the same color. However, this one was found all by itself among a like bunch of tulips!

The colors are magnificent! The yellow forms super intricate detail flowing through the red forming an usual design.

Popular Classic Sports Car

Of all the classic sport cars, the Shelby Cobra is one of the most popular. Carroll Shelby, in the early sixties, created the most sought-after American muscle car in history.

The very first Cobra ever produced sold in August 2016 for $13.75 million. Wow! The one pictured here is a kit car but, still impressive!

Little Red Boat!

Newport, Oregon is home to the largest fishing fleet on the Oregon Coast. A fairly easy bar to cross, plus, crabbing and the fishing are among the most plentiful on the coast.

The "Little Red Boat" stood out at the Pier because of its bright red paint. And, it was one of the smallest boats at the dock.

I added texture to give it a painting-like effect.

Old Cash Register Art

Step back in time when you could get service like it was meant to be at a gas station! This is the interior of an old Flying A Service Station in Oregon in the Pacific Northwest!

It is full of nostalgic service station and period memorabilia. It is no longer a working station but, a distribution center for motorcycle accessories.

When this was photographed, one thing that caught my eye, among many things was the old, antique cash register. And, of course the cool Flying A Service Station hat sitting on top of the register.

Take some time and study the photo. The gas sign, 23 9/10 cents a gallon! The calendar on the wall!

Haystack Rock

This is Haystack Rock which is located in Cannon Beach on the North Oregon Coast. It is a 235 foot "Sea Stack" sitting in the Pacific Ocean.

It can be reached at low tide. Folks can easily explore the tide pools adjacent to Haystack.

It is a very popular touristy place because of its proximity to Portland and, because Cannon Beach itself is a thriving art community.

The image has been converted to a digital watercolor that I hope you enjoy. If you would like to explore this image, or others, please see links below!

Elvis Was Here!

This is the bridge of the Willamette Queen, a stern wheeler (paddle boat) that is located on the Willamette River in Salem, Oregon.

Nothing is cooler than taking a cruise on the river in a fine vessel like this! Well, and enjoying a nice lunch, gourmet dinner or brunch while you are out on the water.

This is not a staged scene. This is the way it was when I photographed it.

And, the thing that catches your eye, right off is the Elvis CD..."Maybe Elvis was really here"!
