CBob Baker, Weller’s Store, Rural, Wisconsin (2015)

Note: click on image to enlarge

After a brief hiatus I’m back to painting, and here’s my latest.  Rural is a real blast from the past. It’s an unincorporated town in Waupaca County, Wisconsin and the Crystal River runs right through it.  Weller’s Store is right across the road from the river and you can hear the water when you’re standing out front.  It’s the sort of cool, offbeat place that’s vanishing fast.  Have a good weekend!

    You’ve caught a moment in time that is fast disappearing. I recently took a train trip across the country, and every so often, we would move through a small town in the prairies. I was happy to see that a few such places still existed. It’s a place that we all remember from road trips in our youth.

      You’re right. It’s almost possible to time travel just by traveling. Thank you for your comment!
