Beach Party

I painted this today and documented the process as I went along.
My first van 'Electric Pete' was a 1974 VW Westfalia camper. He was the best!
When I was 17 I wanted my own wheels so badly, but didn't have enough money to buy him. So my boyfriend and I at the time started a small summer business and I saved enough money to buy my first wheels! He silk-screened t-shirts and I tie-dyed t-shirts and we sold them on the sidewalk at the Kapuskasing 'circle', the roundabout town centre. He now has a successful silk-screening business, I'm here feeling nostalgic, painting Volkswagens. While my beloved van died over 14 years ago, I still miss him.
