A Small Town Icon

During the 2015 Stems Plein Air Festival, I was searching for a scene to paint in downtown Overland Park, Kansas. I went up and down the main drag several times when I noticed the water tower peeking over the buildings - the perfect subject! I set up on the sidewalk and painted as quickly as a swarm of ants attacked my legs. This painting took First Place at the event.
