Gothic


"Gothic After the Rain"
9" x 12"
watercolor on Strathmore
This is a landmark in the city where I was raised..The Gothic Theatre, Englewood, Co.
Still standing...as many movie houses, it has seen it's times of flourish and it's times of abandon and shut down.  For many years now it has been a venue for concerts of all types, mostly the alternative kind.  But, all the same, it's nice to see this piece of history preserved and used.  I spent many a Saturday afternoon meeting up with friends, enjoying a matinee, a big 'hangout' for local kids in a small suburb of Denver.

I love the old movie theaters. We have on of these in Carlisle that is still in use because of the sponsors who restored it and kept it going! Great painting, Pattie!
