"South Wind Motel" is a vividly colored painting depicting a vintage neon sign. The sign's main colors are blue and white, with a cursive style for "South Wind" and block letters for "MOTEL." A starburst feature accentuates the top right of the sign, suggesting a bright neon light effect. The context is a night setting, showcased by the dark sky and the deep shadows cast on the building and under the sign. The motel itself appears somewhat dated, with a brick facade and support columns visible beneath the sign. The artwork has a retro Americana vibe, reminiscent of the mid-20th century roadside motels. It captures the mood of a bygone era of travel with a focus on the glowing neon as a beacon in the night.
