I'm so not seeing it. I see what looks like to be trailers in a parking lot?
Is this just a strip center?

Well, it's "Art", first and foremost, so it's a bit interpretive and subjective I guess--not necessarily real literal.

For what it's worth, I see it. The shopping mall (as the artist called it) is the dark kind of "L" shaped building in the lower part of the frame (with the orange-ish lights running along the outside. See it now?

Either way, if someone paints something and calls it a "Shopping Mall", I'm always jazzed to hang it the Galleria and stand back and have a look-see--however impressionistic it might be. I leave no mall stone unturned here. :)

Thanks for the comment, Scott!

I'm a bit baffled myself about the painting too. I live here in Rockland and we don't have any malls here. Plenty of shopping centers, but no malls. (Actually Maine only has two shopping malls)But it's a neat picture, thanks for posting it.
