To some, Dr. Pepper is a drink. To me, Dr. Pepper is the flavor of memories. Dr. Pepper is my Gramps' favorite drink and we bonded over it while gallivanting around the country on our grand adventure road trip. This picture depicts that epic adventure from the tornado we faced off with while driving through open plains in Kansas to the rainbow that seemed to chase it away. From the WWII planes we saw on our travels (and he told me about from his days in the service) to the puppy that tried to hitch a ride with us in a desolate town in the middle of nowhere. Of all the fun times and great memories I now associate with Dr. Pepper the most important to me is my Gramps.
Wonderful work! Thanks for including the story behind it, makes is so much more interesting!
Thank you! It was nice of Dr. Pepper to offer me some inspiration but mostly I was glad to make a painting for my Gramps to show him I love him and that our road trips are important to me. I gave the original to him while he was in the hospital and it made him laugh
