An homage to small ice cream parlors everywhere, "Floats" by Chicago artist Patrick Fitzgerald recreates a shop sign beckoning passerbys to come in for a sweet treat. The original sign belonged to Bonnie-Doon, a beloved drive-in restaurant in Mishawaka, IN since 1938 and the imaginary sponsor of Fitzgerald's companion piece "Neapolitan Car." Like all of Fitzgerald's works, the painting achieves a certain timelessness, resurrecting the past with iconic forms and weathered textures.

Oil, graphite, and mixed media on canvas board. Framed.
