In December 2011, Darlene Fuhst traveled the length of Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles, taking nearly 10,000 photographs to use as painting references. She will be spending the next year creating at least 66 paintings of the signs and sights encountered along the famous highway. You can read her trip journal and follow progress of the paintings on her blog at

Darlene Fuhst lives and works in Greenville, SC, with her husband JJ Ohlinger, who is also an artist.
