Studio is where the corn is...
Between my show in Des Moines and my show in Denver, I had about a week, 700 miles, and I needed to make some more paintings. SO, a room at a Days Inn in Paxton, Nebraska became my studio for 3 days. It turned out to be a haven of perfect road-living, art-making nothingness. A cheap hotel room with a mini-fridge, microwave, and wifi, with a gas station in front, a pond on the side, barbeque pits, and open air... what more could I want?
It's difficult to describe the serene beauty of Paxton, Nebraska. Flat corn fields, backdropped by mountain-like hills, wheat-fields calmly waving in the wind, one grocery store, one main street, not much else.
