Not a particularly recent painting but thought it would be worth posting. This drive-in liquor store in my neighborhood is a subject that hasn't seen the last of me, painting-wise, that is. I'm feeling a pull to paint it again and if I do, it will be #4 in the series. Paint it until I get it right kind of thing. For one, I think it needs to be large; all the predecessors have been no bigger than about 11x14. A heightened sense of the grittiness of the place will also be a goal. The coolness of the architecture speaks for itself. Stay tuned.
