Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on wood, ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

At the end of a day

"As the busy commuters make haste for the train after another day of work in the 'big smoke', the fading sign on a building wall that depicts a smoking cat watches the scene from high above. "
That what is left of the sign writing era adorns our walls and roof tops throughout the city and surrounding areas.

Proud and steeped in history are the remains of these wonderful old signs that advertise products that are no longer available and companies that simply do not exist any more.
Fractured and torn, weathered and worn.

Over the years these beautiful old signs become something else, morphed lettering, ghostly images, all changing daily thanks to the affects of the sun, wind and rain.

'End of a day' is a work that captures a sign writers skill in handcrafted layout, design and paint application fused with the inspiration drawn from the essence of the ghostly, mysterious and magical signs that are left to remind us of a trade sadly now gone.

This work is painted on 6mm ply, painted in rich sign writing acrylics and finished in a durable satin clear.
The work is easily hung using two mounting wedges that are provided.
