I've had a reference photo of my brother's craftsman home for about five years, and I've talked myself out of painting it a number of times - "How will I represent that part?" "How do I reconcile this with that?" I finally dispensed with the analysis paralysis and went for it. The VW bus is integral to the story - before it's refurbishment, my late father had a nickname for it. "Rust". This is such a California scene - hopefully you can groove on it - even if it's just an old house and an old VW!
