LuLuBelle still hasn't been completely tiled...it's April, 2017.
Do you think I'll get her done by December?
UPDATE: July, 2019: No. She's not done. And now I have three or four more mosaic tile projects...(another sigh)
UPDATE: January, 2020: Not yet.
But I'm gearing up. Tried some epoxy grout on one side panel. Now I have to fix her roof. Leaking.
LuLuBelle's back doors are just about done. Then I can start wrapping more color around the sides and she will look close to complete!
This is the progress made on the "Tiki" side of the van. I'll be grouting just the tikis, mermaid and peace symbol on the front of the van to reduce weight.

And of course, LuLuBelle loves it when she can sit with her people right behind the art booth! This is at DeLand Outdoor Art Festival, March, 2017.
WHOOO-HOOO! LuLuBelle made the front page of the Metro section in the Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville, FL. at set-up for the 50th Annual Mandarin Art Festival, March 31-April 1, 2018.
