On the way to Galveston...

Wow... I really wish I had better scanning skills because I really like this one! I know, surprise! It has a lot to do with this crazy building that I've always loved. I pass it on our trips to Galveston. If you get curious, go to Google maps, type in Seabrook TX, then look for where the 146, 2nd st, and Anders Ave intersect. Then do a street view! It has statues on the shelf, outside. And tiny square glass windows, randomly placed. And, yes, those are plants at the top. Have a look! I'm not sure what it is used for, but wouldn't it be fun to have a studio there!!

  3. Here in Southern California we have a lot of old buildings like this that were the storefronts for dairies. They are disappearing fast. The curved walls and the glass blocks were in hundreds of dairies. I think I might go on a photo safari and seek them out. I like your painting!!

  4. This is a nice one! The pink really makes it pop and the addition of the type is a nice detail.

  7. It's a beautiful little building - love the plant (like something out of Dr. Seuss), and the bells. Well done! (and what's this about soap?!)

  8. Great one Raena! I've never been to Galveston, but perhaps someday I'll drop by. :) I really love the colors and the consistency of the lighting.
