"Sweet Home 11" - Texan Motel Sign Painting Complete

Sweet Home 11 - 20 x 20 - acrylic on old map

I finished up my newest painting yesterday.  It is a black painting of the Texan Motel sign in Raton, New Mexico. It is from a photograph I took this summer on our way back to Texas from Colorado.  I painted it on a 1960's Texas road map.  The title of the painting is "Sweet Home 11".  This is a Texas town and highway mile number that I didn't paint over on the center post of the sign.  Sometimes the ideas for titles of my paintings just pop out at me. Once I saw that on the post, I knew I couldn't paint over it and that it would be the title of the painting.  The painting measures 20 x 20 and is on gallery wrapped canvas with a 1.5" edge.  I'm planning on doing a few more pieces in this style with some of my sign pictures that I have taken.
