This is Faye, the 1964 Airstream Globetrotter.  This photo is from my first big trip out to Colorado last year - you know when I meant to start blogging about living out of the airstream - but because I am the owner and only employee of my business I get behind sometimes...or all the time.  I don't think people know that I run this show by myself.  I definitely get overwhelmed with the business side of my business.  SCAD taught me how to be a painter, how to see things differently, and how to whip out some paintings but they didn't teach me how to be a business owner.  I wanted to start writing about my business because most people only see the cute, happy photos of me and honeybears -- not the stayed up all night, when is the last time I brushed my hair pictures (I only send those to the family group text).  So while I am traveling this summer in the airstream Im going to write about being a full time artist with an airstream...

 I got my cute shiny little old lady in October 2016.  I found her on facebook, took all the cash I could to hold her and figured out the rest.  I had to have her.  For a few years I think I looked online for trailers every night.  I wanted to travel further to art shows and hotels are just ridiculous.  Of course I was drawn to the airstreams (who isnt?? they are so shiny!!) and when the opportunity came I jumped on it.  It just seemed perfect, the airstream was just the right size for me and she was ready to go.  Faye's former owners took great care of her and I haven't had to do anything to her except take out some shelves that I hit my head on everytime I walked by them.  The airstream is only 19 feet long so it is easy to tow and pretty easy to park.  I also have a little covered trailer that I have use for my art named Victor.  Having all that practice pulling Victor around I was really comfortable moving up to the Airstream. (and yes everything I have has a name, my dolly that I move my art with is named Salvador...)

 The extent of my camping before I bought the airstream was my dad taking me and my brother and sister to my Memi's house (about a half mile from our house) to "camp out" in her motor home that parked in the driveway.  We would watch movies and she would bring us chocolate milk and breakfast in the morning.  We would never leave the driveway.  That was our camping.
