I’m nearly finished with this one. I’ll be leaving for Colorado next week for some more plein air painting (and fly fishing!), and I need to finish up the partial paintings on all my watercolor blocks. I have several in progress, and the blocks are all tied up until I can tear the paintings off. A good predicament, I suppose.
I took a number of photographs around Villa Ridge, Missouri while visiting there last week. Soon, I hope to get into a series of Route 66 nostalgia pieces.
Thank you for reading.
