"Saint Vennie's" is without a doubt, the most important painting Blue Sky has created in the past decade. Hearkening to his earlier career, it follows in his ongoing theme of urban 'interstate landscapes'. It is a theme that generated respect from directors and curators of the Metropolitan, Guggenheim, Smithsonian, & Boston Museums and/ Art in America/. Several decades ago, the Mississippi Museum purchased one of these trucks for their permanent collection. Since then their painting, "Air Brakes" has been the most borrowed and loaned painting in Sky's oeuvre.
