Description/Story: As you can tell, I love mid-century signage with its quirky shapes, bright colors and neon lights. Many fall into disrepair or are abandoned which I love their textured patinas. But there are time that an owner will refurbish or restore, as is the case of Wade's Motel along U.S. 1 in Titusville. Some of this sign has plastic over led or florescent lighting to replace the neon which is difficult or expensive to have repaired, but they use the original structure. Here I have taken liberty to make the chevron look like it still has neon even though the restoration is red plastic over lights. I feel that watercolor just captures its character the right way.
