Route 66 Nostalgia at Spencer’s Grill

Despite my earlier post today, I resolved to find a way to get into my garage studio and paint this afternoon.  It wasn’t easy, as I had a college class to teach tonight.  Nevertheless, I did get into the watercolor a bit more, and began the building on the right across the street, and continued tinkering with the horizon colors and shapes.  I think it’s realistic that I could finish this one up by the weekend.  I apologize for the poor photo, as the lights in my garage are not very good, and I didn’t have the foresight to photograph the work this afternoon when the daylight was nice and strong.  But nevertheless it gives the viewer another voyeuristic “snapshot” of a work in progress in my garage.

Thanks for reading.

    Really nice painting, I go to spencers a lot still as I still live in Kirkwood. Great place. Do you sell prints of this? Love to get one and frame it for my house.

      Thank you, Mike. This is a favorite of mine, and I always have breakfast there when visiting my parents. The limited edition measures 14 x 16″ unframed and is priced at $80. I will be in the St. Louis area in a couple of weeks and could deliver this personally if you don’t wish to pay shipping. Thank you for your interest.
