Abandoned 6×8 Oil painting by Tom Brown
As soon as Tom Brown posted this painting on his blog, I grabbed it. It’s a 1929 gas station just outside Santa Barbara, California that was active till the early 1960’s. It was also the site where a Japanese submarine surfaced and shelled a nearby oil field in 1942. In 1981, The Postman Always Rings Twice was Filmed there. Historic notes aside, I love the building for it’s petite profile and architectural details, and I lived in SB for awhile in the early 1980’s so it’s full of memories for me.
