The Old Pumping Station

the old pumping station by janice trane jones, 8 x 10 watercolor w/mat, $100 unframed

There’s only one word to describe Midway, Utah and that is QUAINT.  I have always loved that town and visited often as a child. When one enters Midway from Heber there is a scene that just grabs your eye because of the brilliant red gas pumps and Swiss theme of the building. The building is no long used as a filling station but a person can sit and imagine an old VW Bug or Chevy Impala pulling up to the pumps to have the attendant filler up!  I could not resist the impulse to paint this scenic station. It was fun and several locals stopped by to make sure I was sketching and painting accurately. ~ janice
