Watercolor Painting of the Interior of a Car Dealership

Could anything be as beautiful as a car dealership? Well, yes, many things. But not when artist James Gurney has to wait at one while technicians service his car:

He pointed me to a waiting room, which had a coffee machine, some magazines, and a TV set. But I was tired of hearing about Romney and Obama. So I headed onto the sales floor. I found an empty chair next to the snack machine. I laid out my watercolor gear on a desk and got to work. [...]

The sales people seemed transfixed by their computers. One guy played digital solitaire. They took no notice of me. When I was finished with the painting, I showed it to them. They took photos of it with their cellphones to put on their Facebook pages.
