Wow, Lazy Daze in artwork, what a find.
Intrigued, I looked it up and found it was painted
by an artist named Casey Weldon.
Hoping there was some kind of back story,
I emailed him and he replied
"My grandparents owned one when I was a kid
and they often took my brother, cousin and I out camping.
The painting is a sort of reminiscence of two sisters
I have a vague recollection of meeting
at one of the camp sites.
I was in love with them,
as much as any boy could be in love for a week, I guess.
They were older,
and I don't if it was general disinterest in us,
or another issue,
but something about them seemed sad. "
Is that a cool story or what?
And speaking of Lazy Daze artwork,
back when we first got the rig,
we camped for a while with Lazy Daze friends
John and Ilene Van Gossen.
Ilene Is a talented artist
and gifted us these small paintings,
just perfect for the kitchen in the rig.
I look at them every day
and they continue to inspire me,
I wish I could paint like this!
Feeling somewhat inspired,
I worked on a couple of shots
I've taken of small pewter statues
that we will be selling.
I couldn't figure out
where the striped light came from,
but I liked the effect,
so I just went with it.
And once again,
that's it for today.
