HOT CHICKS AND AIRPLANES: a Las Vegas Tale




So this past weekend I went down to Las Vegas for my uncle Scott’s wedding. And his brother (my dad) commissioned me to paint something for the groom as a wedding gift. In return, my dad decided to buy me a new cell phone. I pay for my college tuition out of loans and I work weekends at the Olive Garden to pay rent and feed myself; so my family helps out by paying for my phone plan. So I asked what did he want me to paint, and he responded "I was thinking...Hot Chicks and Airplanes." I guess it makes sense. Uncle Scott is an airplane pilot. A heterosexual airplane pilot. So I went with it and painted beautiful women and airplanes... it was kinda fun. And in exchange, I got the new iPhone 3GS. Isn't it Beautiful?



Here it is in all it’s glory.
I title it : HOT CHICKS AND AIRPLANES #1
The number is a nice touch, I think. A teaser of more hot chick and airplane paintings to come.
It’s like those movies. THE END. Then the question mark shows up. THE END?
(I apologize for the bad picture, the week in vegas was hectic)


But my parents have always been about their children retaining their own independence and working for everything. responsibilities and such. And since the phone plan is quite expensive, they decided I would have to work to keep the phone plan. I would be under uncle Scott's AT&T plan since my parents are moving out of the country to Germany, so in exchange for the two year phone plan I would have to do six more paintings for Uncle Scott. Probably things that he could hang around the house. Maybe he'll make me paint flowers. But this will officially be known as "THE UNCLE SCOTT iPHONE AGREEMENT!" Here is a picture to summerize the agreement.

Here's a photo of the wedding. that's my dad on the right.
