Finishing the Route 66 Billboard, July 28, 2010

Zephyr Billboard Historic Route 66, Villa Ridge, Missouri

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.

    I really felt a “presence” while I sat that morning and worked on this piece. Thank you for reading and responding. The first day in Colorado yielded some great plein air opportunities. I plan on fly fishing, beginning day-after-tomorrow.
