"Puffy" the Flying Cloud

So we picked up our 1957 Airstream Flying Cloud yesterday, and then spent much of today cleaning it out and prepping to take it over to Grumpy's Repair shop to have a few things fixed up on her. So I didn't get any painting done at all.

Here are a few pics of what will soon become our mobile studio and home away from home when we do art shows. Look out world.

We won't be getting "Puffy" back for about a week or so. Translation, I'll get some painting done.

All the work that she needs will be a project to tackle over time, not all at once. It's better to take our time when it comes to this. Slowly but surely we'll be traveling in vintage style.

I have a feeling that she'll end up in just a few paintings for the "Family Vacation" show at Benjamin Benjamin in Oct.

She's beautiful! Hitting the open road in a tin can - can't get more hippified than that. :o) Bring her by the restaurant one night after her spa treatment so that we can see her. Congrats!

Thanks Kina, we will for sure. Of course it will have to be a night when the parking lot is empty and I don't have much experience backing up with her in tow.

She's a beauty alright now we just have to decide which types of coffee/espresso machines to take on the road with us.
