This is a painting of the old Lobo Theater near the University of New Mexico. It's not a theater anymore, I believe it's a church now. At least it's still standing. The last movie I saw there was, are you ready for this - "The Last Tango in Paris" with Marlon Brando. I think I was barely 17 and it was a very risque movie back then. Didn't think too much of it then, but I loved going to the theater. It had a balcony and was one of those beautiful old-time movie houses, with velvet ropes and fancy carpet.
I don't normally paint buildings and I don't draw things to scale so it has a whimsical look that I like.
