"Shack out on 101" pastel by Ralphie Hendrix

This title is actually a play on words. It’s the name of a very old movie from back in the 50’s. You can see places like this along the highway away from the cities. I like them as there’s an air of mystery about them. Abandoned and slowly melting back into the landscape they sprang from. You wonder who lived there, what were they trying to do and why did they leave. And then there’s the painting challenge of depicting the mood of an abandoned homestead.
