This one is done. I really like the way it turned out. I love the feel of the hot sun, although these days, in the heat, it wouldn't be one of my favorite journeys.
It actually rained here about 25 drops while I was in the studio..
come on rain, do your thang!!
P.S. The story behind this van, it was a 1960's and was purchased 'used' for $350. from Continental VW in Littleton, Co by a friend of DH. The photo that I worked from was from a 3 month ~ 2,500 mile trip that it made in 1975. It also made a big trip to the West Coast right before that time to pick up DH. While in Mexico, it broke down and needed a complete engine rebuild and was rebuilt hither and yon for parts, in Mexico and then driven back to Denver. I hear about this trip OFTEN. I think it was almost life changing - definitely on a 20 something's 'bucket list' back in those days.
EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY, DON'T IT??
