Parking at the True Grit
This brings back memories, a historic small town called Ridgeway in western Colorado in the foothills of the San Juans. The old firehouse is now an art gallery, but has maintained its character. A few doors down the street is the True Grit Cafe, a popular restaurant devoted to the fact that this is where John Wayne filmed the movie with the same name. He left many good memories and stories for the residents, many of whom were extras in the movie. Painting is 5 x 7, wish I would have done it bigger. Maybe I will. I seem to put just as much detail into the smaller works as the larger ones, get caught up in the process.
