This is an original painting of the long closed department store Miller and Rhoads in Richmond VA. I was inspired by the clouds and architecture because to me it had a 1950’s postcard quality to it. The colors that day all seemed just a little to vivid to be true. Painting this I was thinking about men in suits with fedoras and ladies buying fur coats, martini lunches, jazz, and the contrast between the romanticized version of the 1950′ and old department stores and the reality of what it actually was. This image shows a little of that romance and former grandeur as well as the contemporary reality.
