Old State National Bank

12x9 watercolor/ink/collage on paper done today as part of a Facebook challenge to do a virtual sketchcrawl.  It was a much warmer day here in west Texas so I ventured downtown to the old State National Bank building who now loans its impressive architecture to pigeons instead of money to people. Drawn with Lamy Safari pen/grey Noodler's ink on Cheap Joe's sketchbook. Look closely and you can see one of those fake checks I turned over and adhered with matte medium...how appropriate. They come in the mail for thousands of dollars if you'll only endorse and cash for your business needs.  I've always loved the old building and its cement trim and dimly remember when it was open so many years ago on Main Street in Big Spring.  Walk north several feet and you'll be in the Railroad Plaza where Linda Rupard and I had our first studios.
