“The Hangout” Someone sent me a black and white 1960’s photo of a Sandy’s Hamburger Restaurant. I remember eating at one in Hannibal, Missouri, about 1969 or 1970. I’ve done web research on Sandy’s and found a lot of different locations to authenticate the colors I’ve used in the painting. My photo also featured a number of young people around the restaurant talking and drinking soft drinks. I inserted three 1967 Corvettes on the right as well as a 1959 Corvette and a 1957 Bel Air convertible on the left. Note the person sitting on the fender of the ’59 and others on the right inspecting one of the ‘67s. Sandy’s appeared in numerous locations such as Montana, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Kansas, Illinois, Iowa, Arkansas, and Missouri. In 1966 there were 121 Sandy’s in several states, but the entire chain sold out to Hardee’s in late 1971. The title “The Hangout” seemed perfect for the hamburger place and the crowd of kids around the outside of the spot.

Giclée vs Litho
Printing technology changed when the type of scanners used to produce the printing plates evolved. That required changing my printing to the newest and more expensive Giclée Printing. Giclée (pronounced jyee-clay) is printed by a high quality ink jet printing process. Scanning is done in a higher resolution, producing better quality than the previous Offset Lithographic process.
