The Hiway

This is a 16" x 20" oil painting on canvas.  The scene is of Old York Road in jenkintown, PA.  The street is home to The Hiway, a beautiful old movie theater.  The theater and the GE sign harken back to small town America from the last century.

I am a contemporary realist painter with a focus on the old, the overlooked, and the under-appreciated beauty that surrounds us in our everyday lives.  My desire is to get viewers to notice more about the ordinary places and things that they interact with each day; to see them in a new way.
