|The Iowa State Bank in Remsen, IA|
I almost always respond with, "I have to make time." If I don't make it a priority, it just doesn't happen. So the year has started out with other good things that have taken up the hours of my day.
This is a small painting I did as a commission at the end of 2012. Iowa State Bank has a number of locations here in NW Iowa, and I have painted many of these banks over the years. The paintings were given as Christmas gifts to the owner of these banks.
The paintings below are from previous years. I have to admit, these are never a lot of fun to paint–particularly the countless bricks and all the straight lines. But seeing them all together is kinda fun.
|This is the Orange City bank building that later replaced the white one you saw above.|
|This is a small bank in Craig. I liked this one. Mostly the leaning telephone pole.|
|Hull. I like the sky of this one.|
|Alton. This one is no longer a bank.|
|Sheldon. I like the prairie school style of this building.|
|Paullina. This is an unusual one.|
