For Some Must Push and Some Must Pull

This is my first attempt at oil pastels. I saw this old wheelbarrow next to an old pioneer handcart and it reminded me of the LDS primary song about the pioneers that starts off, "for some must push and some must pull as we go marching up the hill, so merrily, merrily on we go, until we reach the valley-o".
I like the orange and blue together and a sort of Van Gogh-ish vibrancy of the rocks and lighting. I was trying to emulate him but I think it's a long way off from "Starry Starry Night"
