Junction 57, Stephens, Ouachita County

Jct 57, Stephens
8X10, Oil on Wood

It's been a while since I've posted new material.  Here's one from our 4 county trip in southern Arkansas a few months ago.  We skirted up the western edge of Ouachita County.  Stephens was the first town we encountered.  What a photogenic little place this was!  I have plenty of material from this town.  After Stephens, we went up 57 and made our way to Poison Spring Battlefield.  I had been there once many years before but didn't remember very much about it.  I was a bit disappointed in that there were no cannon placements or any such items that would have made nice painting material.  We also spun over to White Oak Lake and after getting gas in Chidester we headed up to Gurdon for our last stop of the day.

We've talked some about going back to Magnolia for a weekend this fall or winter over a weekend.  If so, we'll take in El Dorado, Camden and more of Ouachita County, as well as a county or two to the west.
