The Gypsy Wagon - Part 1

The General Hoardmaster is a man of generous talent, although his humbleness equals that talent and you will never get him to admit it. Every day I observe his ability to reshape and mold things, transforming them into objects of beauty or practicality. The latest of his achievements includes this beauty of a trailer that he has been constructing for the past 2 weeks or so.

Before the transformation

This is what it looked like the first time I became aware that he was going to transform this into the trailer. I love the aged blue look of it, but he informed me that I shouldn't get used to it, since it's going to get painted. The metal has to be protected or the whole unit will implode with rust.

It looks so funny as a simple framework, so fragile, so open. I can't believe this will hold our precious wares as we travel over the lumps and bumps of upstate New York roads. I can't wait to see the magic that Chris spins as he puts this together.
