Sign Paintings

Since leaving Saint Germain-en-laye I’ve been painting in my studio in Paris.  A bit cramped and temporary, but it will do for now.  Here’s a photo…

But have I been painting Paris?  No, not yet.  Warmer weather would help.  What I have been painting is West Haven, Connecticut.  Cut-Rate Furniture store is just over the border from New Haven on Route 1, near a small triangular park called Cellini Place…

What I love here is the sunlight on crumbling brick walls.  Some of the same colors I see in Paris streets.  And of course the dilapidated, electrical signs themselves.  Peeling, sad and rusty.  The first painting in this series was Firelight Shopping Center, which you’ll find already on this website.
