Tokio Post Office

This is Tokio Post Office, taken back years ago. It is gone now. The building is not even there. I was so sad when I drove by, and it was gone.
This painting was done by pouring the paint.  I mixed it up in cups, and poured three colors. Yellow first, where I wanted the sun shine, then blue and red in the sky. I had to mask out the whites. After it was dry, then I did the detail with a brush.

New QR-Code for my website




I  have been seeing these on everything lately, and I looked it up, and it is the same thing as a bar code, Called QR-Code.  You just go to
http://www.mobile-barcodes.com/qr-code-generator/
and you can make your own code for your website, phone, or email.
It seems like their is always something new electronically! If you have a smart phone, you can download the barcode scanner. They are all free.
Just hold your phone over the square, and my website will come up, and you can view it from your phone! cool huh?

Tokio Cross Roads

Tokio Cross Roads

This old truck was buried up in weeds, in Tokio TX. Tokio is an old 'little bitty' town that is now just a ghost town.  All the buildings are falling down. There are so many memories from Tokio! I never lived there, but I hear so much about it, since so many of Plains people used to live there. Some dear friends met there at the Baptist Church, and married, over 40 years ago! It was a wonderful little town in its' day. My Granddad used to tell me stories about he and my Grandmother riding their horses to Tokio for 'play parties.'
If you ever travel on US 82 between Plains and Brownfield TX you will go thru this special place.
I have painted all the buildings, and they have fallen down since then! I will post them next.
By the way, this truck disappeared after I painted it!
