Painter Charlie Hunter

Old gas pumps—the greasier, the rustier, the better. Yesterday’s railway stations. Abandoned train cars. Classic ramshackle barns with beautifully weathered clapboards. Battered and bruised road signs. Sharp-finned cars from the 1950s. These are some of painter Charlie Hunter’s favorite things.
