Soda & Cigars - Painting of Vintage Neon Sign Fowles Diner Newburyport, Massachusetts

Soda & Cigars
8 x 8 inches
acrylic on 3/4" cradled panel

Working on some pieces for my upcoming solo exhibition at the Boxford Library. The exhibition is going to be pieces from my "retro roadside" series, with a few additional pieces of buildings in town. More details to come soon!

This sign is in downtown Newburyport, Massachusetts. Fowles was a diner and newsstand - and the sign dates back to the early 1900's. While the old Fowles has been taken over for a new restaurant with a different name, the new owner has kept the historic sign out front as a nod to the location's history.
