Welcome to New Melle

As I rushed up this road headed to old town New Melle, the fabulous "Welcome to New Melle" mural painted on the old shed stopped me in my tracks!  I turned around, knowing I would have to paint this view!  Choosing ink and watercolor to express the fresh spring greens and colors, I set up under a cedar tree for shelter from the approaching rain. It worked for a while, but I was soon heading for the car to let the weather clear.  I'm so happy I could finish when it let up - and happy this painting has a new home, too!  Painting number 3406 in 3406 days.
