Countdown to Route 66 Road Trip

1 Dec

Welcome Project 66 backers, friends, fans, groupies, and web stalkers. My name is Darlene Fuhst, AKA D. Fuhst,  (spelled phonetically for your convenience as the name of this blog) and I am an artist. I’m about to undertake an epic road trip and I want YOU to tag along. Check back frequently over the coming weeks for updates on trip preparation and then daily from December 16th – January 7th for updates from the road. Once I get home I’ll post painting updates, random thoughts from the studio, and other fun stuff.

In case you don’t know what this is all about, here it is in a nutshell.  I like to paint old neon signs and roadside attractions. Earlier this year I launched a Kickstarter project to fund a road trip down Route 66. When I get home, I will take about a year or so to make 66 paintings of the stuff I see along the way. If you are one of those people who is obsessed with details you can view the original project outline here: http://kck.st/mNUJCp

I’m hitting the road with my trusty sidekick (husband and fellow artist JJ Ohlinger) on December 16th and am looking forward to sharing all the awesome stuff we see with you.

Happy to have you along for the ride!

PS – For you stalkers/miscellaneous nefarious characters – please do not interpret this extended absence as an opportunity to rob my house. A big strapping man is house sitting while I’m gone, he has a gun, and he’ll shoot to kill. I’m not kidding. Also, my cat is a hell-spawn demon disguised as a common feline and will not hesitate to claw your eyes out. That is all.
