I've been painting from a van here on Maui for the past 30 years. [ this page was first put up in '98 ] I have had the 1969 van for over ten years. Its body is mostly fiberglass by now :) from all the rust repair. The first van was a 1965, I really traveled some rough roads with that one. This third van, a 1985, I got in 2001. The 3rd photo is this van, taken 8-15-2009.
I just repainted it over a good factory paint job with One-Shot sign painters paint, it still has the lead in it. Again in 2010, it still looks good and it's running fine.
Dec.1st, 1998. Back out on location. Here with my buddy Duncan, painting the Lahaina Mountains. Notice the Lahaina Lady in the Mountain on Day six, everybody that lives in Lahaina knows she's up there.
Day one, 16x24 acrylic.
Day six. Well now, here it is two months later, Duncan had to go to Thailand for the Christmas season so I waited to finish, he's my student. I finally finished on 3-3-99. The grass had turned green and I was still painting the dried weed color. I always said, paint the colors of one hour of one day, no matter how many days it takes, I made an exception.
Day seven, finished. It's a lot different from my day 2 picture.

I really approve of the
speed using the new alkyd as a
painting medium. Here are my examples.
