"Old control tower at Del Rio "

This painting began as a digital photograph taken while taxiing by the scene. The old control tower in the background dates from World War Two days when local air fields were converted for military uses during those incredible times. Now, all that remains of the airports' military past is the skeleton of the old control tower, its' cab long gone, still standing above the magnificent hangers, ramps, and a waiting Cessna 172. All under the blazing, hazing light along the Rio Grande in south Texas.
