"Winona Auto Parts"

7" x 8"
Oil on hardboard

Winona, MN

This is in a little alleyway in downtown Winona. I think the Winona Auto Parts sign is an old one because there is another business using this building now. I love how freeing it is to paint reflections in water. No straight edges or rigid structure to depict. It's fun to create the ripples and stark colors in the water. It really dances.


  1. Very cool! Love the warm red underpainting of the building. You're little canvases always seem to have such a big look to them.

  2. Love this painting, and you did an excellent job creating wet pavement!
