Oh I do like a nice looking sign.
I don’t like roast beef sandwiches but I had to admire this old school Arby’s sign.
I think it’s much nicer than a pig hawking his family’s wares while standing in a pit of fire.
Although he is kind of cute..
For a masochistic cannibal pig chef that is.
Now this is a delicious sign.
Yeah, I made that.
And this is a happy sign.
We’ve had some construction troubles with our bridges, so..
I fell in love this sign.
And yes it does rock.
And of course there are always useful warning signs.
Mascots creep me out.
Especially the ones with really big furry heads.
Magical things happen..my ass.
This is the perfect sign to start a horror movie with..
Deep in the shadows, the foul stench of a thousand locker rooms emanated from a lumbering monstrosity. As it lifted its gargantuan head, its puppet mouth stretched in a voiceless scream.
They would know! They all would soon know..
The Abomination that is matted faux fur…
Whew. I need to quiet down.
Oh good there’s a sign for that too.
Though I must admit, I’ve never seen a corn head that wasn’t calm.
So this is conclusively catatonic corn. Yummy.
This sign is a standard directive.
Okay. That’s a good bossy sign.
Bossy and a little disturbing
To the funeral home..
No! Just no!! Stop it.
This sign seems to be confused..
Is it Ed’s
Or is it Ed’s & Art’s
Or Art’s & Ed’s.
Or is it Arts as in The Arts.
Can I go in there and buy some liquor and some canvases and then paint like Pollock?
I think I need a drink.
Ahh, I see what you did there.
Thank you very much.
This sign is just pretty.
Most of these signs are in or around Galena, Illinois which is where this Inn is.
This is a pen and ink, a little smaller than 3×5.
I did finish it in watercolor but for some reason forgot to photograph it before mailing it off.
If you want to see it in color, simply print it off and go to town with some crayons. Enjoy.
These are some calm colorful corn heads in acrylic. 3×5 on canvas.
And an autumn scene, in acrylic for a WetCanvas Mini challenge. 3×4 inches.
This is a real quickie. Took about fifteen minutes because sometimes it’s simply fun to throw paint around willy nilly.
And it also gives me the chance to use the word “willynilly”.
I don’t use willy nilly enough.
So run amok and paint willy nilly.
Have a good one.

I would LOVE to live in that house. I love the signs too. Remember the ones we saw in New Brunswick? You make me laugh too. Love you.
