A Painting - Wood & Swink Post Office, "Before and After".

Evinston, Florida

As an artist, I am always looking at things differently than most. I have painted several nostalgic businesses around the country.  This is Post Office and General Store, that I found in Evinston, Florida, located in north central Florida.  I was exhibiting in downtown Gainesville during that time.

 I have been asked on occasion how I was able to create my paintings. This series shows the actual place and the final painting to show  the comparison.  Most of the paintings were made from, as many as 12 photographs taken from different angles, as well as closeup shots.  These are the before and after shots.

The after paint is the way to go . . . . Big difference between before and after.

Good luck and success.
