Quiet Dignity

Workers' Houses
Workers' Houses
On the way back from a Maynard Dixon show in Ukiah we stopped for lunch in Tule Lake...there was only one option, a burger joint. As we ate darn good burgers I noticed these three little houses. They were so modest, yet had a quiet dignity. Inspired by the Dixon show, I did a sketch and since it was temperate did not have to seek shade. However, I didn't want to take a lot of time...we still had a long trip back...so finished it in the studio today. Tule Lake is a very small and mostly boarded up ranch town. Sad how so many small rural places are really not much there anymore.

This is one of my new favorites, Janice. So reminiscent of my childhood back in MN. A wonderful painting.
