abandoned store front 

This painting is from a photograph I took on a side street in Featherston – a small town in the Wairarapa of New Zealand. The abandoned shop was probably once a dairy (what we call a general store) or a butcher shop. I have painted the store in a realistic manner as per the photograph, but the surrounding landscape I have indicated  in a more abstract painting language.
