I was at an estate sale when this suitcase caught my eye. It was the exact one we had growing up. It was right about the time I was thinking about what to paint for the summer…then it hit me! A 28-day family vacation roadtrip! Why 1972? It sounds good and it was a great year! I remember it as a kid, having all kinds of fum just doing simple things. We never went on a 28 day roadtrip, but we did do a lot of camping. We did go to the ocean a few times. This series of paintings is all about simple, summer vacation memories. Hope you enjoy watching them just about ever day!
