The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Monday Mural

De Kalb, Texas

Since I showcased the Ricky Nelson Death Plane and Dan Blocker and company this past week, I thought why not show the mural across the street from where the relocated railroad station museum stood.  If you missed the Ricky Nelson post click here and for Dan "Hoss" Blocker from Bonanza click here.

What speaks Texas more than a scene like this?

This was done on a corrugated tin building which must make the effort all the more difficult.

  1. Says Texas to me. You're right about painting on corrugated siding. Must be pretty tricky. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  2. a good mural and very clever when painted on that material especially

  3. Perhaps oil drilling. But I agree with you. Texas and" Hit him Pa"

  4. that's really beautiful and very well done - especially considering the surface.

  5. Great mural! I have a western theme on my Mosaic Monday post.

  6. Reminds me of a Marlboro ad.

  7. This does look like what I think Texas is like. :)

  8. That's a great use of color to help camoflage the tin surface.
