Oil on Birch panel, 2011, 5"x 7"
Todays painting is of the amazing sign out in front of Harpos theatre. You can see the sign from the freeway. It must cost an incredible amount of money these days to build a sign like this, because no one does it anymore. Every old theatre had a sign similar in scale and style, but even on the new stadiums like Ford Field, which could support a large elaborate sign and it wouldn't look out of place, they don't do it. Its absolutely great advertising but you are stuck with the name even if ownership changes.
