"RILEY'S DAIRY BAR, NETTLETON, MS."


No. 252 in my 365/2010 painting series.
Title: "RILEY'S DAIRY BAR, NETTLETON, MS."
Size: 8.5x11 inches
Medium: Watercolor on 140lb. cold press paper.
This little building in located on the old hwy 45 north between Aberdeen and Tupelo Mississippi. When my little girl, Robin was a baby this was HER place. I think it was her Pa Pa who started it all but she would recognize when she was close to it and we always had to stop for her. This is one of the little Plein-aire painting I did this summer, in about 20 mins sitting in my car across the street from it.
One of my new FB friends lives just around the corner from this place. It is a Restaurant now and the word restaurant is were it says Dairy Bar. I just had to change it back.
I do hope you like what I do.
Comments and/or remarks are appreciated.
