Telling a Local Story

“Storied Marquee” (watercolor)

“The historic Grandin Theatre in Roanoke, Virginia, is the crown jewel of the Grandin Village, a vibrant neighborhood node just two blocks from my home,” says American Watercolor Weekly Ambassador Kevin Deck. “It’s front facade is iconic, so it was with some trepidation that I mustered the courage to interpret this beloved building. The painting portrays a late afternoon scene with golden sunlight washing the storied marquee marked by the shadows of unseen trees, telephone wires, and street signs.”
