Like many of you, my home is decorated with a multitude of petro-related art work. Here is my *favorite -- can you I.D. the (famous) artist? I picked this up at IKEA sometime in the early 90s for the $ale price of twenty six bucks. At 54"X36" it dominates my foyer!

Lets see some of your faves -- I'd imagine Jack Schmitt will be in the mix.

Steve

PS: I wrote a piece for CTO Mag (Feb 96) about this *particular station -- it was titled "Jack's Gas" anyone recall it?

Here is mine. It is an original oil painting. It was painted by the sister of an oldgas/pitstop member.
