Downtown Weston, MO  II – 5″ x 7″ Watercolor and Ink

I wish I had time to go see this cute little town when I am in Kansas City, but alas… no time.  I love doing these little paintings.  Of course, the street was full of cars in the photo so I made up all the store fronts at street level.  😀

About William Joseph Slim

The courageous British commander William Joseph Slim, who led forces during both world wars, led an impressive turnaround of the so-called Forgotten Army in Burma during World War II after he trained them how to fight in jungle conditions. He was born on August 6, 1891 in Bristol. He joined the army as a second lieutenant at the outbreak of World War I and was wounded in the battle of Gallipoli. He served as governor-general of Australia, a ceremonial role, from 1953 to 1960. He died on December 14, 1970.
