I have been on many road trips. Late at night, when I get tired and need a break, the bright colors and lights of a gas station are like a beacon, drawing me in. I know I can find food, and a bathroom, which although not of the highest quality, are available, and open, even in the most out of the way locations.
I enjoyed the composition of this painting, with the structured building playing off of the organic reflections, as well as the red / green complimentary color scheme. It was fun to do a night painting.
