Edition 50, artist proofs 5

A rear view mirror is completely taken up with a big black and yellow truck. This brought to my mind an angry bee.

I pulled out onto the highway one day, only to notice that the 18 wheeler had pulled in front of, was going faster than I had estimated. When I looked in my rear view mirror it was right there in the center, very close to my little car.  I quickly ran through a range of emotions from, oops sorry, to gulp, to wow that is one very cool aggressive Bumble Bee of a truck. I am not typically a truck ogler, but somehow that truck caught me on an artistic level, and I have done my best to recreate it here.
