    Ahh Pat, you touched my heart! When I was a kid, my Dad's uncle owned a station much like this, and I hung around there a lot! For a kid it was great, because it was sort of a meeting place for everybody anywhere around the town. Listening to all those guys talk, I learned a lot. Uhh... some of which I probably shouldn't have .... Superb job on this Pat!

    I too love nostalgia and this was exceptionaaly well done...many years ago my dad and I ran a service station and auto parts business
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    This is really good! and I like the painting more than the photo. Just one personal preference thing missing is the bit of tree at top left
    If I were marooned on a desert island, please air drop me a copy of Artrage 5.0! (Plus a laptop and solar panel)
