6 months I began researching a new adventure Van for the fam, after settling on a JDM 1991 Toyota HIACE Super Custom 4WD, diesel moon buggy, 3 weeks ago she finally was ready for pick up. Danny of @vanlifenorthwest is amazing. He spent 3 months searching for one in Japan, imported it, then spent another month restoring and rebuilding this beast. He is the best in the country if you are interested in these. We took “Tsuki Lee” on her first road trip and off-road adventures in the majestic Oregon Gorge this weekend. We can’t express how insanely awesome this van is and the anticipation for further adventures. #vanlifenorthwest #valleygorgehub #orgenismagic #tsukilee #lulutoohottohandle #nikitafontana #blainefontana #thedallesoregon #vanlife #toyotahiace #spacevan #oregonmuraltrail #hiace @steve_t_day

Snuck in one more painting before the end of the year today. A commission that’s been on the books for over a year finally completed for my friends 11 yr old daughter. 48x48” Acrylic on canvas. Happy New Years everyone, thank you all for the support and inspiration in 2018. Be safe out there y’all! 😘#blainefontana

One of the last sections of the 320’ wide mural project I did with @plasticbirdie in The Dalles all through summer and into winter. All our love to Papa Steve Dalles for making this happen. #thehubvalleygorge #valleygorgehub #thedalles #blainefontana #oregonismagic #oregonmurals

Just an average gleeful and proud Saturday morning in The Dalles, OR with the mayor, chamber of commerce and the wonderful staff of @traveloregon at a ribbon cutting ceremony for my #oregonismagic mural and the #oregonmuraltrail project. Without my good peeps at @ffttnw it wouldn’t have been possible. #onlyslightlyexaggerated #thedallesmurals #thedalles #blainefontana #ffttnw
