Something Kind of Fun
My art group, Capital Hill Arts League, has a fun show coming up. We all signed up to do a painting based on the cover of a song. My song is "On the Road Again." Since I had been reading The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test, I decided to paint the bus, "Further." This is the bus Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters took across America. The driver is Neal Cassady, who evidently did most of the driving.
This painting is 22" x 28," so it is pretty big and kind of "in your face." I think, though, that was how it was when the Merry Pranksters were on the road!
