Get A Horse 2


Last Spring I found this old International truck near a mercury mine near Terlingua which is near Big Bend National Park. This is the second time I have painted it, and I'm not through yet! Getting it up the mountain in the first place must have been an event in itself. The trail to the mine is quite a bit less than well graded and was pretty rough in our 4-wheel drive jeep! Temperatures in this part of Texas get over 110 in August and rainfall is less than 16 inches a year - making the area a true desert and quite formidable. Many people live here, however - some without electricity and running water. Instead they utilize solar power and catching rainwater. Gotta love it!
Psalm 68:16 Why gaze in envy, O rugged mountains, at the mountain where God chooses to reign, where the LORD himself will dwell forever?
