Fire Station #2 in Mishawaka, Indiana is located on North Main Street. The antique Fire Hose Reel is on display just outside for everyone to see. Can you imagine having to pull that behind you, when many roads of that era were not paved and definitely were not smooth.
The painting was a 9 x 12 and was painted with acrylic paint on stretched canvas. The original painting was sold shortly after it was finished, many years ago.
While traveling around the country exhibiting at hundreds of Art shows and festivals, One of the best in the Country was the Mountain State Arts & Crafts Festival, in Ripley, West Virginia. It was rated #1 in the Country by Sunshine Artist Magazine a number of years ago.As I returned to this show in July of each year with new paintings, I kept seeing this old fire truck just sitting out in a field. You might say that it’s days of fighting fires were over and it was put out to pasture. (Pun intended). Eventually, I stopped and took pictures of the truck and painted the acrylic painting on canvas.Every year since, I sold quite a few prints, especially to the local residents. I was told by the property owners, that the fire truck had been used in parades since its retirement. That’s where the the Stroh’s sign on the sign came from. It was put on after retirement.
