All That's Left
oil on board 12x16
This sign is all that's left of what was apparently a restaurant called Grandview Gardens in Los Angeles's Chinatown. There is now an empty lot behind the sign with lettering identifying the spot as Chinatownland.
I searched in vain for a picture of the original building, but have so far come up empty handed. I wasn't satisfied with the original lighting on this piece so I went back and did some glazing and re- stated paint into it. Now I like the lighting, but find the paint a tad overworked in places. They can't all make you totally happy.
I have a old painting in a new book... info:
