Don painted numerous watercolors of Riverside's Fox Theater. This particular piece was painted in 2003, however the source material was from the early 1980s. The Fox Theater has changed tremendously since this painting with a full restoration now making it one of California's premier live music venues. This glimpse down Market Street still remains one of Downtown Riverside's most iconic scenes. Compared to his paintings from the 1980s, Don was much more generous with his use of paint and color application creating vibrant and rich hues throughout the painting. We think of this particular rendition of the Fox is perhaps Don's finest.
The Fox Theater can be found at 3801 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, CA
