27"h x 48"w, Oil on Canvas
The sign "Crown Art" once said "Crown Mart". But when somebody opened up a gallery there, they changed it. And the sign is being used to hold temporary signs and is showing its age. The building in the middle is also in the process of change. The figures, including Bruce selling papers and Mike putting on the siding, are not depicted in the quick frozen pose of photography. Rather, they posed for their figures and held the pose long enough to be painted (except Mike).
The entire landscape was different by the time I completed the painting. Most of the buildings had been painted, and the trees were bare by the time I was halfway done. Even more has changed since then. I always feel that my best work is the one I am working on, but this one is really one of my favorites.
