Texas Grill - Watercolor


This is painting I finished yesterday. It was done with Pigma Microns and watercolors. It measures 5 x 7. Its the sign from the Texas Grill in Ballinger, Texas. I used to eat there a lot during my college days. It was the mid-way point of my drive from Texas Tech to my hometown of New Braunfels. They had a really good chicken fried steak as I remember. I'll never forget the time I found a large carpet ball deep fried in my french fry basket. I tossed it out and kept eating. Good times!

    When we moved to San Antonio in Aug. 1972, we stopped and ate breakfast at the Texas Grill. This was your first Texas road trip cafe stop.

    Jeb, I think you had a Chicken fried steak while still in your car seat. It was also your first trip to the Texas Hill Country that day.
