Paintings From The Old Neon Boneyard

52 8 x 10 gouache paintings on hand made Tibetan paper. The series was painted en plein aire at the old Neon Boneyard in Las Vegas, Nevada fromDecember to June of 2007/8. I was very privileged to sit inside the Neon Boneyard on a daily basis for six months and document the rusted, broken glass neon old growth forest of Las Vegas. A boneyard is a British term for graveyard. Most signage was made by YESCO, Young Electric Sign CO. Most signs were built to specification and leased, maintained by YESCO during there years of use at casinos and restaurants up and down the Strip and in downtown Vegas. The 'bones' of the old signs ended up being preserved at the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. I am looking to find a home for this historical documentation of Las Vegas' history and hoping to keep it all in tack. There are 52 8 x 10 paintings displayed here. The Neon Boneyard is a rich cultural museum in Las Vegas that no longer looks as it did when I painted it. I am very fortunate for this experience and have deep gratitude for all the people that helped me achieve this body of work.
