This is a picture of an ice cream parlor on the street corner. The building has white siding with the corners black brick. There are two women standing outside of the parlor. There is a sign outside in the middle of the building that appears to light up. This picture contains many horizontal and vertical lines. There is not a wide variety of color in this piece. This piece appears to be balanced because the focal point is in the center. There is some contrast between the black of the brick and the cream colored building. There is use of geometrical shapes.
This piece seems to tell many stories. This is a picture of an ice cream parlor and eatery on the corner in a town. At first look, I got a positive feeling from looking at this piece. After studying this picture for awhile, I got a negative feeling. The colors in this picture also depict good and bad. I like this picture because it makes me think of small towns. I have always loved small towns and buildings like this.
