Ambassador Lanes, oil on canvas, 26" x 39"

Ambassador Lanes is a painting 22 years in the making. I used an old Ektachrome slide that I shot an of this sign in 1989 for reference. The sign is long gone. Again I used painting knives as much as possible only resorting to brushes for areas too fine to make knife work practical. This painting will be a part of a show of landscape paintings that I am having in September 2011 at BayArts.

  4. I see that you said you used a slide that you had shot as the template for reproducing the work. I own a bowling center in the Cleveland area and I was curious if you had taken any other slides or pics of bowling center signs.

    1. I have a few others. I don't have any of your Maple Hts. alley.
