Brown's Hardware Now

I depicted "Brown's Hardware" in its 1880s version a couple of posts ago, and here it is as it is nowadays. I prefer a wood-frame house with a weathered porch myself, but this is the typical American retail architecture of our times. As with the other Brown's picture, I've left unfinished areas where captions and Trader Joe's logos will be attached. The directive is to present Falls Church's civic features with Trader Joe's logos on or beside them. I'm now working on the second pair of "Then and Now" panels, which will depict the post office. 

Acrylics and acrylic markers on Masonite panel, 4' x 3', February 2013.
