Not Forgotten

6x6 inches, acrylic

I like old signs, and this was one that caught my eye day and night.  It was a big scaffold with neon letters and a neon lit diamond, and it advertised a local jewelry store for decades.  In fact my parents bought their wedding rings there.  Unfortunately, the sign was damaged in a wind storm a few years ago.  The letters were saved, but the diamond was ruined. I asked the owner for a photo from which to work, and while it isn't photo realistic my little painting reminds me of the sign I used to like so much.
