Haffner's is a small chain of gas stations located in the towns north of Boston. Aside from the overall retro feel of the place - the sign is a huge neon kicking donkey - what I found tremendously appealing about it was the opportunity to paint both sunlight and artifical light in the same scene - the lights under the canopy were bright enough to cast a noticable glow - even during the day!
