This little sign was difficult to depict. It stands in the middle of a tree growing around it and you can only see the majority of it when the leaves are gone. I frequently paint or sketch abandoned places, and this is as lonely as it gets. I don't even know if this was a store or motel sign because it's surrounded by a field where the structures of a building or buildings once stood. So, this drawing is about time passing and also standing still. The original drawing was snapped up quickly by a patron who grew up in the town of—you guessed it—Lone Star, Texas.
