United Artist Detail, 7"x5", oil on linen panel
This is a painting of the United Artist Marquee, the building is still standing but the marquee is gone. I had a lot of fun doing this painting. When I first decided to paint it I felt that it might be to simple to really challenge me. But the more I painted the more I saw and isn't it the artist's job to find more than is there? I was happy with the way it came out. A lot of the fun of painting is the physical act of painting, the moving around of paint, the way paint gives the elusion of the actual object. It is why painters paint.
