"Ice Cream Factory" by Larry Lerew

"Ice Cream Factory" by Larry Lerew 
7.5" x 9.5" Mixed Watermedia on Watercolor Paper 

I revisited my past from old sketches and personal photos to make this new painting of Rakestraws' Ice Cream in Mechanicsburg, PA. The building has changed today so the smoke stack, tower and whole second floor are gone but I needed to create this memory from the 70's as it was on a warm Sunday afternoon.

See an ever growing collection of my paintings on my website:

Can't believe I have lived in Mechanicsburg for 8 years and still have not been to Rakestaws.

A colorful and happy painting, Larry. Artists are fortunate to be able to recreate the past.
