The Vogue

While delivering some new paintings to my gallery in Manistee a couple of weeks ago, I set up my easel right out front and did this painting of the old Vogue Theatre across the street. Closed for the past couple of years, it holds memories for me of my summers on staff at camp nearby. Hard to believe that was thirty years ago. I saw Star Wars there—the first one, Episode 4. There's talk of a renovation, but with the bad condition it's in and the Michigan economy, it's not Coming Soon.
Oil, 12" x 9"

What a great image! So nicely done - I wish I'd been on the street as you were painting.
I saw "Love Story" there with a big group from Camp. Luckily our friend Mary came prepared: her roll of toilet paper got passed & threaded through the rows as the girls all bawled their eyes out!

I am feeling very sad that I missed seeing a movie here... but I did go to the "Rialto" in my own home town! I love this - particularly the paint quality - so luscious.
