Last week, Gene took a trip to Northern Illinois to repaint his beloved Maybellene for owner Larry T. You may have heard that Maybellene was to be sold at the Russo & Steele auction in Scottsdale, AZ but was damaged when the tent she was in was partially blown down during a storm. Due to the damage, Larry decided not to sell and brought her back to Illinois. Soon the damage was repaired and Gene was called in to work his magic. I had the opportunity to stop by the shop while Gene was in town and got to watch first hand as he laid on the colors and pearl. It is amazing to watch him work! I felt priviledged to be there and witness the rebirth of Maybellene. Attached are a few shots of some of the early coats. Thanks to Gene and Larry for letting me stop by. The last shot is the proud owner with the great painter.
