The Exhibit 6x8 original oil on canvas

I went back to the area I was in last time to get a better look at the machinery.  They actually had severalof these all lined up pumping away, but I just wanted to study one.  I finished it and the last thing I added was the fence.   I thought how it looked like it was in a zoo or museum and I was there to see something that was the last of its kind.

how prophetic (your comments)...I've always thought they look like giant grasshoppers. Great painting!

I'm from Oklahoma and this so looks like home. I remember as a kid thinking these looked like creatures drinking from the ground through a straw.

Wonderful piece!
