“Narragansett Electric Company”
September 2015 (Providence RI)
I was making a U-turn trying to get out of the park after making what I thought was the last print of the trip. I hopped out and noticed the unique typography in a football type shape before reading what it actually said. I don’t know much history about the company, but I do know I didn’t plan on finding it, it was very old, and it reminded me of tallboys. That all meant I had to make some room for another print.
I tried to match the color of the actual iron in hopes of keeping it classic and telling of its age. It was 90 degrees that day and the surface was very porous which translated to the canvas almost exactly as it looked.
