A Plein Air Attempt of the Historic Ridglea Theater, Fort Worth, Texas

Historic Ridglea Theater on Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth, Texas

Ninety-Seven degrees on September 25 doesn’t add up to a perfect outdoor Sunday in my book.  But I did step out this afternoon and attempt some plein air sketches with my new Prismacolor watercolor pencils.  I’m excited to learn that the historic Ridglea Theater on Camp Bowie Blvd. is going to be restored to its pristine glory.  I saw Casa Blanca on its 50th anniversary in the main theater here, as well as my first Coen Brothers film Miller’s Crossing and A River Runs Through It.  I have many grateful memories of this place, and am glad that it will re-open.

I’m not finished with this sketch.  The hot temperatures got to me, so I decided to photograph the theater and finish it in the studio hopefully soon.

Thanks for reading.
