This painting was originally commissioned by a retired California politician who wanted to share some of the charm of old Sacramento with others. It has since come to be a very popular print that for most people is far more universal than the specific city it portrays. I think the reason for this is clear; we all like a celebration. Main Street Celebration depicts festivities that could occur on any holiday in any city in America. The mood is joyous. The activities are plentiful. The energy is contagious. I especially like many of the hidden details I this piece. The fluffy dog is a portrait of a friend's family pet. Many of the models for the people were family members or friends. Even the signs have special meanings; the "Grady's Fajitas" sign barely visible on the ground floor of the main building is a tribute to an old friend whose cooking is legendary!
