#206 Have Bus Will Travel


2.5"x 3.5"(ACEO) gouache on gessoed heavy paper SOLD

Here's VW bus art card. It's in gouache this time, so I gotta resist the temptation to varnish it (don't I?). What can I say? You know I love the boxy shape. When I was a kid every mom had these and we took them everwhere. They were surprisingly robust for something with just a vw bug engine in it. I still smile whenever I see one.

Jeff, we have this exact bus! It's a family heirloom, so to speak, passed down from my fiance's grandfather. Same colors and everything. Nicely done!

Mmuchas Gracias for the comments! Yeah I love the VWs too. My mom was trying to get this little one because it reminded her of her old VW bus and hippie days too. When I was a baby they used to put me in tye-dyed baby clothes. Seriously, I have pictures.
