"VACANCY"

Long ride, hungry, in need of a place to rest along with a bit of luck, and there it was, almost hidden by the glare of the New Mexico sun it screamed at me "VACANCY".  With no hesitation, I pulled in, parked, and practically running, headed straight into the office scaring the sleepy manager behind the desk and said,  "Ill take a room".    This is an original oil painting on birch wood mounted to a 6x6" varnished 1.5" deep wooden box: (Sold)

Gerald - OMG - I love this so much. You know (or maybe not) that I was raised in Santa Rosa, NM and my father built several restaurants there - the first one was the "Sun and Sands" - it was built next to and named for the Sun and Sands Motel.

Nice to see where you've been! Looks like a good place to pull over and watch the sunset.
