Park College Power Plant – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Ink

This was fun!!!  I looked all over Parkville, trying to get a good view of the college, with Google street view, but there are just too many trees.  I did find this little gem though.  I’m wondering if it’s a restaurant.  The hubby noticed there were no beer lights, so it’s unlikely it’s a bar.

    I like the little plants and the pink tower.

    I can’t decide if the buildings are my favorite, or your rolling hills paintings! This one is terrific. I love the brick pavers and railings and little plants!
