Saying “Yes” to the Muse

Today was one of those agonizing high school teaching days.  Midway through my load, I determined to head for Waxahachie as soon as I could clear my campus.  I’m glad I responded to the impulse.  I found a comfortable, well-lighted window table at Zula’s Coffee in the historic Roger’s Hotel on the town square, and resumed work on this old abandoned store I found in the Mississppi River town of Winfield, Missouri, northwest of St. Louis on old Highway 79.  I’m nearly finished with the work, and will gladly post the finished result as soon as it is ready.  Hope others enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed watching it emerge from the paper this afternoon in the overcast light of a weary Texas weekday afternoon.

A Mississippi River town northwest of St. Louis on Old Highway 79. I spotted this old abandoned business while on a road trip last summer, and decided to commit it to watercolor.
