A diptych that I painted for my What Remains Series. My intent was to make the lettering faded but readable. The painting was inspired by an old abandoned filling station in Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico. The colors and the peeling paint attracted me. I added the words.

My grandfather had a store which he advertised as a "Dry Goods Store." He carried work shirts and fabric and other "sundries." He would bring home the white cardboard inserts from the work shirts for me to draw on. This is the second painting I have done using these words which are special to me.
