Te Brewster General Store
Oops, another VW bus painting. I started doing VW bus paintings many years ago when my daughter requested one. She was a student where there were lots of them still going and had fond memories. Sketches were easy then because there were plenty around. I put them in paintings at that time, but just remembered them recently, when I sold a painting of Mendocino with a VW bus. Three people wanted the same painting. All of them said it was the bus. Driving those buses was work and the ride was enough to induce the 'shaken baby syndrome'.
The Brewster General Store is an icon for the town of Brewster on Cape Cod. It is draped in patriotic bunting and there are always kids with ice cream. It is a favorite family stop.
