This drawing was done to literally round out my solo show in Temple, Texas and came from a desire to do something with the local sign. The sign is sitting in the middle of an empty field with a tree growing up around it. I cannot get good reference shots because I need a better ladder and you can't get close enough to it because of the tree. I've no idea what the sign was for, but I'm guessing it was a small motel. It still has a few pieces of neon and light bulbs hanging on for dear life. So, this drawing is my first attempt at figuring out what else I want to do with it.
Surprisingly, the one piece that was last minute in the show sold to someone that fell in love with it. It happened to be the name of the town the collector grew up in and there was a perfect spot for it in their newly designed home.
