I have been toying with the idea of making some paintings that aren't robots. I have some software called Painter that can be used either to make finsihed digital artwork, or just as a way to visualize paintings without having to use up a canvas. That's how I use it. The motel one was done directly on top of a jpeg that I cropped and rearranged a bit first. You can still see a little poking through. The lemon one is just a lemon, maybe laying on an unfolded paper bag.

I like the style of these. The hotel one looks kind of Hockney-ish. Reminds of a cheesy place in the panhandle that Bob, my sister and I stayed in...

The photo is of a hotel in Amarillo called the Amarillo Motel. So it very well could be!!!

You can kind of tell by the shape of the sign that this used to be a Holiday Inn -- old school style. We stayed at one when we came down to Texas when I was like 6. I remember it was so cool that we got to swim at night.

The one I was thinking of earlier was in either Dalhart or Dumas. Probably Dalhart...
