I went on location one morning in 1996 to begin a painting of a colorful florist shop in Palo Alto. I placed my easel off the sidewalk, down in the gutter, in order to keep out of the way of workmen who were remodeling the store behind me. It turned out to be a protected location behind the bumper of a parked panel truck.

I proceeded to work the canvas. After an hour, a man driving by, stopped his car and commanded, " Say Lady, read that truck!" He pointed to the rear of the paneled truck at my elbow. I turned my head and read "B & L Painting, Painting Contractors' in big six inch letters painted on the rear doors of the truck.

The observant driver then added, "I saw that, and then saw you standing there painting and I thought, My God, she's got her own truck". We both grinned.
