Wanting round through previous recordsdata I got here throughout one other submit I assumed I had misplaced after I received hacked just a few years again. I did lose quite a bit however what are you able to do.I discovered my lesson and now again up all the things on a flash drive. This submit is from January 2015
Completed My Portray
Yesterday I made a decision what I wished to do with this portray so within the
early afternoon I attacked ! I painted for just a few hours and tweeked it
this morning and right here is the outcome.
I name it “Arizona Rust” It is oil on canvas 16×20 and on the market (not
low cost however then I by no means promote any of my stuff low cost) Touring out west
this previous October has impressed me to color.That is the primary of what I
hope shall be a complete sequence of work from the Southwest Desert.Now
that it is winter I am going to have time on my palms and use it as I bounce again
& forth between paint and constructing bikes out within the storage.
This week I will begin cleansing out the storage and preparing
to work on the 1988 BMW that my buddy Tony threw my means again in
November.Cannot wait to assault this challenge.
Engaged on bikes type of lights the artistic hearth in my head.I can not
determine it out ,there isn’t any connection between the 2 issues aside from
that they each are actual pleasurable for me however that is the way it works.
Yesterday I additionally listed the 1965 Commando 273 V8 motor I’ve on
Craigslist. This explicit motor is of historic significance as a result of
it’s the first 12 months and the primary excessive efficiency small block Chrysler
constructed.It is the predecessor of the 340 .A bit screamer that winds
proper as much as 6000 rpm’s if you open up the 4 barrel .It was meant for
my gold 65 Barracuda however I by no means received round to putting in it ‘trigger the
318 I used after I constructed it by no means wore out so why change it.Properly,the Cuda
is historical past now and I just like the 66 convertible and the 65 wagon with the 6
cylinders they’ve in them.From my perspective the 6 is simpler to work
on and cheaper to run .
Beginning to eliminate stuff I am not bringing to Arizona now. It may
be yours for $1200. I additionally purchased a transmission to be used as a spare for
my 66 Valiant convertible as a result of two weeks in the past I bought the one I needed to
my buddy TA to exchange his in his 1966 Dart Station wagon.He.s a great
buddy and wanted to repair his experience so I helped him however then began to
seek for a substitute for my stock.Gotta have spares if you
drive fifty 12 months previous vehicles.The vert is coming to Arizona for certain.It’s going to
be nice to have a convertible on the market man. Ah,the lifetime of a
motorhead is the life I selected and I gotta say,I would not change a
factor.I am unbiased ,have no stinking automobile funds,am not
enslaved by the financial institution so fuck all of it,I am means higher off than most.It’s going to
be a cheerful day after I lastly am heading west in a truck filled with my
bikes and components.I LOVE ARIZONA !
I do know that when I get on the market and arrange store there shall be a 30’s
automobile in my future.I actually like mid 30’s vehicles,they’re so fucking
cool.One thing like this 36 Plymouth that I simply lifted off the web
is what I will be searching for as soon as I get on the market.
Properly,I feel I am going to prep one other canvas and begin fascinated by what I
wish to paint subsequent.I’ve time on my palms and it is shitty out so I could
as nicely paint right this moment .I’ve some concepts,I introduced residence this yellow orange
paint that I used on Pete’s home for the shingles.The entire time I used to be
portray that home I used to be pondering how that will be a great base shade
for a desert portray so I feel I am going to idiot round with that.
