A trucker fairytale, the barrel tells an endless story truckers traveling through the forest, reflecting their inner monologues as they drive. It tells a tale of love, loss, homesickness, and hope.
Using paint markers on a stained oak barre, the colors and subject matter were selected to match aspects of Verst Logistic's brand. All materials were bought at a local big box craft store.
Inspiration came from the trucks in this drawing. I wanted to capture the mystery of the Southern woods, using the storytelling element of a panoramic canvas.
