A farewell on Hertel Avenue
The Kmart on Hertel and Delaware has closed and overnight, the sign came down.
It is harrowing to see.
Whereas in my sketch of Kmart the lot was filled with life ...
.... now all is bare and desolate.
What with the building knocked down yesterday that is two of my art subjects that have disappeared in the space of a couple of days. I mean, with Kmart we knew it was coming, but still. When it actually happens that does not make it easier to take!
Howard wondered if our friend Ryan had bought the big sign. But no, he had not.
Another friend had gone in early on hoping to buy one of the interior signs but they were all gone.
I should have drawn the interior of the Kmart. I should have drawn everything in it.
On account of you never know!
