Port Costa, ATE Theatre

This was an old sign outside the Port Costa Post Office. The town is an artistic junk lovers tiny historic place, filled with wonderful broken or ancient stuff. After I left, I felt the painting was just to smooth for the feeling of the location so I scumbled and textured it until it took on a proper patina.

  1. This definitely has the character of the junk yard. The "ATE" is part of STATE Theater. The sign is in two pieces. It almost looks like its a night scene, maybe from a scary movie.

  2. I love this, complex and fascinating.
