Tony Craig


Cactus Motel (Barstow, CA ; Route #66) is a watercolor painting by Tony Craig. The art measures 27 1/2" x 10 1/2" and the frame is 36 1/2" x  18 3/4", frame included.

Artist note: 

“The Cactus Motel is a good representation of what you would find on old Route 66 in Barstow, CA. Online reviews of the motel run the gamut, but they are indicative of this type of old motel. The fence in the foreground was on the other side of the motel, but I thought it would make a good anchor at the bottom of the composition. The yellow and green make a nice contrast to the wintery blue sky also. Look at the amenities! Color TV! Coffee (free, no less)! Pool! All at budget rates.”
