There is now a Perryton Ohio Facebook page. I believe it will help kick start my book about Perryton. I wouldn't dream of writing such a book without good pictures. Here is an old stone chimney not far from the sleepy little town. Perhaps in my travels and research I will find the story behind that stone chimney. I have already used it in one of my paintings.
This is a photo of that upcoming painting. The stone chimney is now painted beneath the McDonalds sign. You can probably see where I am going with this. The old farm all but vanished, and new advertising spattering the skyline. I call this painting EIEIO from the refrain of the old song Old McDonald Had A Farm. I am hoping to get back to that painting this month if I can secure some more acrylic paint. The idea for this painting was inspired by James Howard Kunster and his book The Geography Of Nowhere.
