“We’re all about camouflage,” says Gary lineman, who has a number of hunting cars, like the jeep, with custom camouflage painted in the woods of Alabama.

“I don’t want to draw something ugly,” lanier recalls her initial misgivings about the camouflage of the game. Above, her artistic details.
Gary Linam loves to hunt. When he and his hunting partners Mike Self ventured into the Dogwood outside of huntsville, Alabama, Flats, they open a four-wheel drive jeep, pick up the DVD player, Sirius XM radio, backup camera and GPS system. Linam was dressed from head to toe in camouflage.
“We’re all about camouflage,” says Linam. “We have camouflage, steering wheel covers, but the cool part about it is the paint job outside.”
Linam’s jeep is a work of art – in any case, thanks to local artists.
“We’ve worked with miss Lou Ann Lanier, and she has painted a camouflage car for us, so we’ve integrated into our habitat,” Linam explains.
Lanier is Madison Alabama a simulation artist and guidance teacher, she follows several one thousand – year – old tradition, the artists use the thin coating, glaze and plaster to make attention skills. For her clients, Lanier makes almost any surface look like marble, leather and metal.
Ten years ago, the self-taught artist was running a busy business when he got a strange request from her husband: he wanted her to disguise his jeep for hunting. Other camouflage techniques, such as appliques, are expensive – not to mention shiny, which can scare away animals. Lanier’s husband wants some special duck season. At first, she dismissed the idea of disguise.
“How ugly,” she said. “I don’t want to draw something very ugly.”
But she took out a camouflage shirt with her favorite pattern and began experimenting with colors, techniques and paints. The jeep was hit. To advertise, lanier placed leaflets at the local hunting shop. Now she painted boats, trucks, jeeps – even amphibious six-wheeled vehicles. Her last canoe was a native of Arkansas hunting ducks.
Lanier carefully daubed any surface animal that might notice the door, the bumper and the interior of the roof.
“You have to look at it from the Angle of the duck and from the hunter’s point of view,” she said. “So the roof of all vehicles must be painted, and when they fly, they need to look like treetops, so they don’t scare them away.”
Gary Linam and other clients have returned to Lanier’s camouflage painting again and again.
“We may not use camouflage cars to kill more animals, but we do feel better,” says Linam. “We think this part of the more, as ye women wearing your shoes, you must have the right shoes to find the right environment, so you can be satisfied with their own behavior, about our hunter is too.”
For Linam, his worries were lost in the woods. At least some of it comes from the amazing beauty of car paint.
