On the Road with Kerouac Sentiments

I always feel a twinge of sadness when I have to leave the lovely town of Palestine. I took this photo of a magnificent historic home while taking a stroll yesterday about the town. I really wished to set up an easel and see what I could do with this in watercolor, but I had too many commitments to keep, and as Robert Frost would have it, “miles to go before I sleep.” However, I am sure I will pursue a watercolor of this lovely setting.

This morning finds me back on the road, driving through scattered thunderstorms, and gazing across the East Texas landscape. As I look, I engage in one of my favorite activities, what Edward Hopper referred to as thinking out my next painting. Before hitting the road, I did begin two new watercolors, one of Archer City, the other of Palestine. I hope by the time I blog the next time, that I will have something good to submit.

I am pleased to announce that 12 people have signed up for the beginning watercolor Workshop I am doing in Palestine March 16th. If any of you in the area would like to participate, we have 8 seats still available. Cost is $30, and it will be held in the Redlands hotel lobby from 10 to 1. Lunch from the Red Fire Grille is included in the cost.

Until next time then, thank you for reading!
