When I'm driving into Austin, I will usually take this exit into town. So many of those times I've thought to myself, "There's a paintng here. Isn't there?" I finally made a point of making the trip to get a painting done, and it rained. Such is plein air painting. I wound up enjoying painting the solemn harmony of grayed color and laying on those lozenges of paint that make-up the bridge. I just needed to get round tuit. You never know, 'til you try.
