This painting is an homage to small town America. The sign hangs above an ice cream shop in Plain City, Ohio and it is pictured here just before sunset.
This painting represents an interesting arrangement of compositional elements – the sign, the flag, and the web of power lines extending in different directions. Despite its simplicity, there is a great deal of depth, as well. The sign advances forward, the flag occupies a middle ground, and the dark trees establish distance.
