"Working Class Hero" by Carol Thompson

Working Class Hero

"A 'hero' is one who has done great deeds for the benefit of others. Look at this fine old truck and imagine its many heroic deeds over time."

Artist comment:  "An old dump truck sets among weeds and tall grass. As I stood and gazed at it, I could imagine the many years of service it was asked to perform. It's formerly red exterior is now mostly rust. With one headlight broken, and its dump bed forever frozen in a half-raised position, I was reminded of the days when it was sorely needed and ready to do what was required of it. The use of gouache was a tribute to the patina given it by 'Time' itself."
