Description: A painting of a close-up of a tractor tire, an ordinary farm object. The tire is aged and the rim has some rust.  In the background is a wood plank floor with another tire peeking in. This painting is perfect for anyone who loves farm, country, tractors, or rustic decor.

This work of art will not need a frame as the painted composition extends around the edges of the canvas. Hand-painted and signed by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

Artist Comments

Tractor Tire was a little bit of an experiment for me. Sometimes I like to give myself challenges. In this particular challenge, I wanted to see if I could paint rubber and make it look like rubber. I think I achieved that goal.

What I like most about this painting is the different textures present in it — the wood, the rubber, and even the rusty metal rim. It was an enjoyable challenge painting all those textures and getting them just right. In addition, there are warm colors that contrast against the cool ones. There are so many neat things happening in this painting; it was just a fun one to paint!

This painting would be the perfect art piece for the man cave, especially if you love farm tractors or cars. I can imagine no one would have ever thought a tractor tire would be the focal point for a painting.
