Essential Business – Painting

I painted “Essential Business” in response to the closing of all businesses in New Jersey due to COVID-19, except those deemed essential. In New Jersey liquor stores are of course classified as essential.

I was inspired by my Strolls through the Hood in Jersey City for this mixed media painting, and specifically a row of businesses with great looking signs and a lot of vintage character.

As a European I am also still amazed by the fact that often times liquor stores and pharmacies are in one building -just calling it Drugs and Liquor – lots of thoughts provoked by this in me.

This original painting was made with spray paint, acrylic paint, gouache, and markers on canvas and it measures 10×10″. It would love to find a new home and you can buy it here in my store if you are interested.
