U.S. Post - En Plein Air Texas!

U.S. Post - Cristoval, 12 x 12, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2015

On Tuesday of the competition, we were invited to paint in and around the little town of Cristoval, TX, south of San Angelo. This little post office is the main meeting place for the townsfolk there (according to several who stopped to chat), AND they had recently gussied it up with new awnings (just for me, I decided!) Something about the tiny building, the striped awnings, and the giant flag was just too hard to pass up! 

Have I mentioned the wonderful San Angeloan hospitality? They provided lunch every day and dinners most nights. On this day, one of the volunteers brought hot fajitas and a HUGE piece of chocolate cake right to me, where I was painting. It was way over the top! THANK YOU ALL!!!

Hi Laurel,
This painting is really fun and it was great to hear about the towns of Cristoval/San Angelo and how awesome the people were. Fajitas and cake while you paint? Cannot beat that.
Happy Painting!
