PSA: 54.5cm Meech touring frame with Pegoretti-style paint job

"So D. How did you finally decide on how you would paint the frame?"

It's funny you asked. The night before I painted it I was lying in bed with colors going through my head and eventually just fell asleep. I had a dream that night that I was riding a horse through the desert by myself. There was nothing spectacular about the dream, just me on a horse walking through the desert. As I was drinking my coffee that morning I was recollecting the dream and wondering what brought it on. At first I thought about Clint Eastwood movies, but I hadn't watched any for quite some time so I didn't really feel any connection. Then, straight out of nowhere, Don Quixote entered my mind. I'm honestly not sure that I've even read the entire book. I've read bits and pieces and seen various artists do painting of him but I really didn't remember much at all about the story. I thought a Don Quixote theme on a touring frame was a great idea however I thought that maybe I should read the book first. Then I thought, "Nah, I want to paint it today. Maybe I'll just go get the Cliffs Notes. Nah, screw that as well." So I just sipped my coffee, scanned a couple of pics and pieces of the novel, and in true MEECH fashion just flew by the seat of my pants like El Don himself.
It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that certain je ne sais quoi.
