Oil Painting | Palace

A collector, who loves movies, asked me if I could paint him a cubist-inflected painting of a movie theater. I studied theaters around the country and chose this Deco-facade movie house from Seguin, Texas. The side buildings were from other locations. Part of the challenge here was creating night-time lighting when my sources were pallid daytime. I added some details from actual cubist paintings in the movie-poster frames on the Palace's street-level walls. The painting is in oil on baltic birch plywood.
