Next up is a painting that celebrates an art supply store on Magazine Street in Uptown New Orleans. It is called National Art and Hobby. What’s unique about this particular art store is that it features murals on an outside wall facing a side street. Some murals from a couple of years ago were my inspiration for this painting. Recently they were painted over making way for a new mural.
acrylic on canvas, 5" x 5"
After much contemplation, I came up with this design. Again, I incorporated a grid into my painting. The name of the store is visible if the piece is turned sideways. I set the painting aside for a few days before I finally finished it.
