A sight on my way to work...lonely old ice cream stand. It will be crowded when it opens again in late spring.

A Christmas gift I made this year. I'd seen the quote tacked on an office wall and thought it might be appreciated matted and ready for framing. Here's hoping! The paper is painted with acrylics and the lettering is pointed pen in ink. The thins aren't as sharp as I'd like - I believe that has to do with the acrylics as base. : (

Love this! I think it's perfect just the way it is, but I know we're our own worst critics. I find I get better (but not perfect;-) pointed pen hairlines on acrylic if I use super-loaded matte medium mixed with the background paint.
