Vanning is a compulsion, an obsession, an occupation, an affliction, a fascination, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it, must. Those who don't, think it's a waste of time. For me it is a calling.

Before I can work on the van I needed to do a job for a customer. Today it was lettering a horse drawn ambulance for Mr. Green. He is a regular of mine. He restores horse drawn vehicles of all kinds,and has a large collection of them.
He needed this done for a show he's going to this weekend and I promised him it would be done.

stage coaches, hearses, wagons, and lots more. these things had miles of stripes on them!
I've spent a lot of hours in this building.

last night it was the white base, candy red(transparent color) and the shadows, today it was the white highlights,some color, face details and a coat of clear. tomorrow, phase 2. unmask this and mask the next few color panels. see ya tomorrow.
