    Rene’s Salon of Beauty in Chicago, Illinois. The patina has added a level of irony. Painted from a photo taken by S Jones, known as Pixel Jones on Flickr.

      So stunning! You've done her proud, capturing every rivet and line with gorgeous precision while the rust subtly weeps for the passage of time. Nice touch, that.

      To give you an idea of how successful your painting is, when I was showing it to my wife and flipping back and forth between it and my picture of the sign, she kept saying "no, wait that's your picture, right?" when it was actually your painting. "That's more how it looks", she insisted.

      Geez, I'm flattered and all but you just made my most viewed and favorited picture look "fake" in comparison. Thanks a lot ;)

      Great work in this series Andrew. You've got all the neon bends correct particularly near the housings and the right sheen on the patinas to differentiate between the porcelain faces and painted sheet metal faces. I've seen excellent paintings that miss those points. (I'm saying this because I'm a neon guy, not a painter!)
