Shell Gas Pump

Lula, Georgia

When you look at the gas stations of today, with their fancy buildings, and huge canopies over the pumps, you forget what it was like, less than 30 years ago.  While driving down the back roads of north Georgia, we went through the community of Lula.

In my early years of painting nostalgia, while gathering information on future paintings, I came upon a Shell station, that was located in Lula.  It had the old-fashioned look of years gone by, so I stopped and took a few photos of the gas pumps.

I eventually painted a painting of those pumps, which also became part of my gas pump set of 4 different brands.  Some of the others were, Gulf, Texaco, Marathon and Sinclair.
