Not Dead Yet

Salt Lick Shack, 6x8
SOLD

This morning's Plein Air Austin paintout was on the property of a famous central Texas Bar B-Q joint, the Salt Lick, in Driftwood. Before this image convinces you never to visit said gathering place, rest assured this is not the actual restaurant. In fact, this forlorn structure is a good quarter mile away, back where some maintenance and repair equipment is kept. I guess you could call this a supply shed, as it's full of all sorts of, "supplies." I don't think you'll find any of them on a working inventory list, however.

Nothing like Texas Bar-b-q! I know, I used to live there for 13 years. Still can smell the mesquite.

Great painting Stephen and especially your fun title.
