I used the color palette and Lydell Quinn's sketch at The Color Room to create this masculine page. Let me tell you it was so difficult for me not to lay down a flower or feminine embellishment. The whole time while creating this page, I hummed the tune of "Mustang Sally". I bought this 1966 Mustang in 1976 for $30.00. It wasn't running and required an alternator. This old beat up vehicle got me to college and part-time jobs, and left me stranded too. I could not drive more than 20 miles without having to pull over to a gas station and fill up the radiator because it had a small leak. One day I had locked my keys in the car at a mall and called my brother Scott and another brother to come rescue me and requested they bring a clothes hanger. In those days you could slide a metal clothes hanger through the side of the window and hook it on the metal door lock to release the lock. They found me at the mall, got out of the car, popped open the trunk of their car and pulled out a wooden clothes hanger. I stared at them in disbelief, speechless, and all kinds of unfriendly thoughts were going through my head. How could I be so lucky to have two stupid brothers? And then I lost it! I yelled at them and told them to go back home and bring back a metal clothes hanger. They bursted out laughing and went back to their car for the metal clothes hanger. Scott is a jokester, and I should have seen that one coming. After I landed my first real job, I handed down the Mustang to Scott. He love it! One day I came home and found that the Mustang was painted a shimmering blood red color. It was spectacular. Upon further investigation, I saw that the transmission was sitting on the back seat. The pretty Mustang sat in the drive way for months.
Thanks for stopping by.
