I did not get to see much of Texas on my first day here. After 21 hours of travel, I reached Bryan-College Station at 6:30 in the evening. I spent most of my journey people watching. I always enjoy making up little stories about my fellow travellers using only their clothes and luggage for inspiration. From the glamorous women in long evening dresses to sleepy children in pyjamas, wrapped in a blanket, my favourite person was a man in a tan corduroy suit with a beautiful set of vintage luggage, which inspired my first small painting.
