  1. I never could think about a tractor as about the one with joyful and light-headed personality))) Now I know that it is.
    Great!

  3. Nora, I dearly LOVE your style! I even told a friend I needed to relax and sketch a "Nora style" one day. Your sketches in my inbox are a lovely start to my day. Thank you! (and you've also prompted me to do a DPW Challenge)

  12. You have done so much since I have had time to comment. Love the green tractor. I was riding around the other day taking pictures for reference and saw some old tractors now I wish I would have captured them. Love all your paintings. Beautiful as always. Your site is one of my favorites to visit. Always something fun and refreshing.

  15. Terrific tractor. Brought back memories of driving a beat-up old tractor on the farm next door when I was twelve to help with harvest. Thanks for the lovely painting and the reminder of happy times.

  17. Herrlich, ein Trecker, und er ist so herrlich bunt.
    Das erinnert mich an meine Kindheit auf unserem Bauernhof.
    Mein Vater hatte auch einen roten Trecker.

    Alte Zeiten :-)

  46. I have found that ordinary things make the best subjects for spontaneous painting or drawing. Try a mouse trap sometime.
