Having found this magnificent tar truck on the Sturt Highway, and the crash barrier quite close to home, I did the painting immediately, adding a washed out gulley we had come across at Banrock Station. The traffic cones were stolen.
I returned to the tar truck's weight and complexity many times after this first one. Ignore the necessity to attempt to read function into realism and a tar truck comes very close to abstraction.
