Wednesday Works - "Lido Motel"

This is a painting that I did in late October. I actually drew out the sign onto the canvas on the last day of school last year. I believe the Lido Motel is in California. It was going to be my summer project. I never really got around to it this summer. I did put a sky in last summer.....but then I changed it after some consulting with my buddy Craig Gould. The colors just weren't right. Anyway, in October, I painted from 11 AM to 6 PM straight one day and knocked it out. It is truly one of my favorite works so far. It is one of the largest pieces that I have ever done. It is 24" x 36" acrylic on canvas. I had it in a show at the local Irish pub - Lochrann's in Frisco a few weeks ago and it has even been used to help stage a house in the area. The house sold if you were wondering.....but after my painting had been taken down. So this piece has definitely has got me inspired to do some more big neon signs.


  1. Incredible piece. Definitely thought it was a photgraph at first glance. I like how you have captured the distressed paint on the sign.

  2. i like how the colors blend
    nicely done,


I always like to hear what you think.....drop me a note!
