Winters Water Tower
I love old water towers. They have been used for a long, long time to highlight the name of the town they are in. Either it's just the town's name as in this painting ("Winters"-a small farm town nestled against the coastal mountains on the Sacramento Valley side in Northern Calif.) or a salutation such as "Welcome To Modesto". This is an 8"x16" acrylic on stretched canvas. I've just started to brush on a self leveling clear gloss gel made by Golden over my finished acrylics for luster, depth, and greater color richness. More water tower paintings may be in my future.
