Truckers Prayer Acrylic Painting to Benefit Max Hogan

I recently painted this 34x41 acrylic painting to raffle off to benefit a truck driver who is being treated for cancer.  
This guy had drove for me years ago and is a pretty good friend so it wasn't too difficult to come up with ideas for this image.  Of course I would use his truck to connect him, an eagle where he is native.   The landscape I chose was Mt Katahdin, in this area of Maine it is a major landmark and would make a connection with the area.
 I spent about a week pondering worrying and planning until finally the canvas was ready and late one night I decided go for it.  The next morning the painting was complete.
I had the idea of what to add but no real defined plan, once the paint hit the canvas it worked itself out.  

The painting was raffled and was a complete success, the winner chose to give the painting back to Max which I was happy about.

Abandoned House

I have been eying this old house for a while now.  Today I finally made it there with my camera to look things over a bit more.  Would love to get inside but not sure if it would be safe.

Wotton Barn

Spotted this barn a few months ago and finally found the right time to go and do some photos.  Didn't get all I wanted -the blackflies were too hungry and I didn't have my allergy medication.

There's so many interesting images at this location I will have to go up again.

Rise Above Festival, Bangor ME 2014 -Avenged Sevenfold

Avenged at Rise Above

Rise Above Festival, Bangor, ME 2014-Seether

Couldn't get a photo pit pass to this show, which meant I couldn't take my SLR.  Had to made due with my little camera which drove me crazy but did catch some good shots.  Seether was difficult because of their lighting.
